Kelly Rauer – Weight

My sound design and camerawork for this installation captured dancer and video artist Kelly Rauer leaping, jumping and crawling through the empty space of a blank, sunlit studio.  Rauer arranged video projections throughout the gallery along with televisions of various sizes.  Viewers were surrounded by stuttering sequences and asynchronous rhythmic gestures, unable to see all screens at once – or any screen in isolation.    From rafter-mounted speakers emerged closely-miked recordings of separate but similar movements, mixing with the small scattered sounds on television monitors.  The gallery space was filled with creaky footsteps, bodily thuds and breathing.
