This was a commission by the Boston University dance program. Wishing to reflect on the Buddhist idea that none of us is completely separate from each other, I started working with video projections on the bodies of the dancers. Choosing two very different dancers, by both gender and race.
We made clips of them that enabled us to project one dancer's image on the other's body. This was the first time
that Stephen helped me with the video concept by working with Isadora software to manipulate the video images' scale and location.
