Heat Dance (Stairway 4) is the second edition from Benton C Bainbridge’s series of moving paintings observing hot bodies in motion. Bainbridge shot Kate Griffler ascending and descending a stairway with a thermal camera in an empty theater, then filtered the video in his studio.

Thermographic technology sees only differences in temperature. A transitory heat perimeter blurs the boundaries between dancer and space; slowly fading hot spots mark the impact of warm bodies on cool surfaces. Image Processing further dematerializes Griffler’s movement. By observing the heat of bodies in motion, the series offers a primal glimpse into the original visual music: dance.

Heat Dance (Stairway 4) was first shown at the MoMA PS1 Printshop for the ALLGOLD “Commencement” exhibition in 2015.
