Mechthild Schmidt: Stochastic Study Grid 7

  • ©1989, , Stochastic Study Grid 7

Artist Statement:


    This tape is a collaboration with choreographer/dancer Jo Andres. The series of dances and video-interplays is based on the hypothesis of time as a subjective and fluctuant perception – and the measuring of time being but a psychologically reassuring aid. The manipulable time epitomizes the electronic age as much as the manipulable hand/foot symbolizes the machine age. The formal structure of the project reflects its digital environment: mathematical equations and digital headings are associatively combined with the topic of each selection.

    Possibly named Time as a Centrifuge.
