Acts of Holding Dance is a large-scale projection installation. It features dancers who have been digitally manipulated and slowed down.
The work was developed during an artist residency at the Centre for Projection Art. It was inspired by Anna McDonald’s thesis paper about the nature of loss. This idea is exaggerated through movement composition.
Location – Rowville Art Hub
