    Radiant Soma



Artist Statement:

    The human body has historically been a constant source of fascination in the arts and sciences. With the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the debate over the virtues and disadvantages of physical versus virtual bodies has increased dramatically. One of the most difficult attributes of the human body to translate into other forms is the essence of human movement and, by extension, energy. Radiant Soma emphasizes the ephemerality of human movement by visualizing motion capture data with light. The installation of lasers and phosphorescent objects transforms choreography that the original performer can no longer perform into a constant stream of lively spirits.
