Exhibited in 2011 Glasgow Art Club

Filmed on degraded 16mm film and digitally reworked

This installation presents a mesmerising tryptic within the frame. The models dance is one take but

each video starts at a different stage and presents an interesting play on continuous movement and perspective.
The theme of the piece is an exploration of a subtle masculinity in the female form with the absence of obvious signifiers  and facial indicators. This muscular motion is visually emphasised by the three moving images. When the subject eventually faces the viewer during the dance the duality it creates becomes a stark and intriguing experience.
