SYNOPSIS
The main character in the video is a dance performer situated in media environment with splashing saturated colours, like a woman enclosed by the media wall. The speed and braking of the image represents the dancer’s nervous movements in the space that create an emotional tension. The sound composed by Borut Savski intensifies the fragmented and nervous motions and determines visual coordinates. The entire sound and visual imagery is saturated, repetitive and fragmented, composed by numerous cut frames. The main focus of the video is the usage of formal video language and technical interventions that produce a strong emotional impulse and a critique of media reality. The video is a result of improvisations by Maja Smrekar and Borut Savski at Cirkulacija 2 collective - it portraits the inner state of mind when undergoing a claustrophobic episode. Therefore the video depicts an emotional voyage into the state of distress, acute anxiety and panic attacks. A layer of an image is taken from the movie Flash Dance, manipulated and cut numerous times, then reused in Resolume VJ software and rendered through graphic filters, edited, filtered and re-edited many times around. The major part of artist’s media art work dwells into complex cultural anthropologic situations, while in her video works she most often refers to pop images that she reinterprets to reveal their inane constructions.
