Wise words from the legend about dance and the camera influencing my thoughts about my work this week.

“…This mysterious and difficult-to-define phenomenon called dance leaves its source and takes on an identity, a destiny independent of its creator. I hold to dance because it is decidedly concrete in the face of a world in which ever more experiences are facsimiles, but there is no small irony in the exciting prospect of this most natural of human phenomena—the dance—being transformed through the medium of technology into a poetic parallel virtual incarnation”

from “Dancing and Camera” by Bill T. Jones
