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.

Populous

A live artwork performed collaboratively with contribution from Artist Neemita Dabhi, consisting of a large scale ephemeral drawing made through mass participation with visitors to the Southbank Centre, London as part of the Alchemy Festival 2011. The piece explored the spontaneous transfer of cultural data, the act of drawing as ritual and notions of shared space. The pieces where created and destroyed by members of the public directed by Ashokkumar Mistry using a mixture of ritual, storytelling and gameplay.

Duration:6 hours
