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.
