Overview

Gravity Shift is a video installation that looks at how we might read gravity through witnessing another body. It aims to decentre the viewer's relationship to the installation through presentation of a dancer whose movement is affected by a moving pull of gravity.
Further Details

Variation of Gravity
The direction of gravity perceived by an audience remains a constant downwards in live dance and performance. Though there are countless theatrical techniques that try to defy this (aerial flying wires, balletic techniques etc), performers are inevitably subservient to omnipresent attraction exerted by gravity. In live performance both audience and performers experience this pull creating a universal sense of “down” both on and off stage. This shared sensation aids to create a sense of stability or centredness within the viewer’s mind as the effect of gravity witnessed on stage concurs with their own local sensations.
Post-modern art, particularly installation art has frequently sought to question assumed stabilities through a shifting of the viewer’s perception.
This installation aims to create a situation that decentres the viewer’s physical awareness through presentation of human movement where the pull of gravity has been dynamically distorted.
