Reorienting The Fall

2020 | HD | 5m

In their first experiment together choreographer Elisa Zuppini and visual artist christopher tym investigate the relation between a body and a camera in motion.

As these two bodies amplify and inform each other’s movements, they begin to produce an altered sense of a moving environment between them, something beyond representation of the human body and its surroundings - they become extensions of each other. There’s a sense of free fall in this relationship, there is no up or down and that all movement has the potential to be destabilised and reoriented in multiple directions simultaneously.

The video is split into four chapters —
1.Limbs & Joints
4.Combined Articulations
