This is just cool:
It doesn’t really need to be articulated verbally; nor to have me overlay it with attempts to impress you with my smartness. In fact, to permit myself one statement, the videos on the site are so compelling and rare because of the simplicity with which they affirm the beauty and importance of things non-cerebral.
It’s worth as much or as little time as you have to look at it.
From the site:
Slow Dancing is a series of 43 larger-than-life, hyper-slow-motion video portraits of dancers and choreographers from around the world, displayed on multiple screens. Each subject’s movement (approximately 5 seconds long) was shot on a specially constructed set using a high-speed, high-definition camera recording at 1,000 frames per second (standard film captures 30 frames per second). The result is approximately 10 minutes of extreme slow motion.
It’s like impossible Tai Chi and way better than Dancing With the Stars, which is pretty good.
First discovered on mwcapacity.wordpress.com.
Here’s to hoping an installation of it comes to DC.
