Now Playing: Process Movement
Absorb, meditate and see.
*Please note, there are a few viewing suggestions and prompts.
I hope you enjoy watching these as much as I did making them.
This weeks screening of the three films titled Process Movement was a special one. Hosted in the courtyard of where my studio is at Collingwood Yards, under the trees, with just the right amount of summer heat and blowing wind.
I’m still buzzing, and couldn’t quite sleep afterwards. Not only was it really nice to host an intimate event, something that still feels novel after this year. But to hear such individual and varying takeaways from everyone afterwards.
From what people were drawn to, to what memories or feelings were bought up. And from reflecting on how they move and also the smaller details in movement also. To the mesmerizing state, something like running can bring. It was my hope from the beginning to be able to create something that could touch on and talk to different facets of how people think about movement and the senses involved.
Gait analysis films on YouTube partly inspire the films, and the mediative state running can bring. Whether you are running or daydreaming about running.
The films are a product of these daydreams. Whether I was travelling or listening to certain pieces of music, I’d think about how running looks or felt to me and am forever interested in how other people are sparked by running or describe it. And no matter how you move or why there is a certain amount of relatability and common threads of feeling.
Process Movement looks at communicating the form and flow of focussed running; paralleled with prompting you to absorb, meditate on and relate to the physical sensations of movement.
While the films represent the act and practice of running offering in some sense instruction and guide, there is a chance to analyse the details; you may find cues and or see yourself in your mind’s eye running.
Both are individual, yet; the process contains movement and movement contains a process.
