Topography New York, 2013 Previous | Next

Topography is an ongoing project that uses dance, projections, film and music to explore global and personal landscapes of body, thought, space, and time. It implements the use of body-mapping, projection technology, and has been a true collaboration of effort and love. 'Topography' is a term used in map making. Often Topographies are detailed descriptions, drawings and 3D representations of the physical features of a place or region, especially in the form of contour maps. Topography, the forthcoming film, seeks to explore this idea with the landscape of the human body. Much like navigating terrain, the body and the physical perimeters of the space alternately take on the function of map and means, path and pathos, guide and guided.
"The map is not the territory" -Gregory Bateson
