erosion dance

'erosion dance' is an art performance that only occurs once at the lobby space of mit. inspired by how weathering and erosion slowly carves and modifies landforms, the project explores this ephemeral quality through the combined acts of erosion and deposition.

a carefully planned choreography allows a creative and elegant way to capture this fascinating process on fabric. with the drawing instrument gradually broken down, performers employ their bodies and through tension and dynamic gestures, transferring their movements into sand particles on canvas. a diagram is slowly built up on the fabric, creating a trace mark of this cinematic performance.
