Dance Machine

This project aims to discuss what’s the function of space, to explore the relationship between objects’ physical movements and spatial configuration in a different way, and to consider how we search/use/limit/share the space for a different purpose. The artist takes a dynamic sculpture approach to investigate the realm between visible the invisible. The purpose is to transforming the dismantling gestures into a machine perception, trying to conceive new possibilities toward seeing and stretching on modern dance, body movements, space section, choreography as visual art, and moving as objects. This project bases on three main components—space, light, and movement. Space includes unique spatial structures, which contains a stage, theater, gallery, human living place. Lighting and shadows shift in three-dimensional space to picturing a room blended with dots and lines, to show the replacement of the performer, the traces of objects’ movements, and the invisible.
