Incidental moments of independent movement

Synopsis:

A series of time based studies exploring the proliferation of spontaneous patterns of movement through crowds during large public gatherings via a process of cultural learning.  Each of the video compositions was filmed during public festivals or unplanned gatherings in which people were free to dance spontaneously.    The compositions explore the phenomenon of cultural transmission whereby one person leads others into a improvised dance or movement. As more people participate a pattern emerges that proliferates through the crowd driving the energy of the celebration.  Each individual becomes consumed in the moment and lead individual that initiated the process is absorbed as the movement becomes self-perpetuating.
