Benton C Bainbridge has opened his first exhibition with the online art gallery [s]edition. “Heat Dance (Rooftop 1)” is the first edition in a new series of dance media artworks that transform movement through thermography and effects.
Bainbridge and choreographer/dancer Kate Griffler made “Heat Dance (Rooftop 1)” in late summer on a Hell’s Kitchen rooftop. Griffler’s form is highly abstracted through the thermal, optical and digital image-processing. Her silhouetted figure dances with noise artifacts that emerge from the filtering techniques.
Bainbridge and Griffler thank Raymond Strano for the use of his ghost-detecting thermal camera.
