ONES – week 6

From the start of this project Miku and I have said that it would be an experiment, where we would discover what happens if you give two collaborators from two different disciplines the same material, which has been created together, to edit an individual film of the exact same length, using the exact same soundtrack.

Since we are each editing at the moment from individual perspectives without communicating about the process, we are bound to have two very different films that will come together through location, sound, style and performance.

Miku is a choreographer who explores the space with her whole body, merging it in to the environment. As a visual artist, I explore the space through a camera lens and frame, putting my body outside of the environment to let my eyes make a composition of the different elements within it. Therefore, our methods of exploring the various locations will have been different and thus it will affect our editing processes.

This by far is the most fascinating and thrilling part of the project so far, because we can’t predict the exact outcome. I’m very excited to see the differences and similarities between how Miku and I see, think and explore when we are not creating together in person.

By the end of October 2014 I started a research project with choreographer Miku Tsuchiya. The process consisted out of four makers intensives on four different locations throughout the UK in which spatial composition, dance, painting, movement and film were explored. The flow was enticing and the footage was rich. Consistency and style began to form out of two different disciplines, dance and visual art, bringing it to a new level in which exploration and intuition became the leading roles of this collaboration. Central to this research is the use of the digital canvas as our main tool.

When in December 2014 Miku moved back to Japan, we became well aware that in this digital age boundaries are relative when it comes to distance. Since we have landed in the next step of our work process, the digital step, we have decided to collaborate from opposite ends of the world.

From this day we will log the process of our collaboration onto this blog as a support for the work being created through theory and practice.
