Sustain Release

Sustain Release, adheres to a familiar format—a video projected onto a flat screen flanked by seats for viewing—but employs haptic feedback, direct contact with viewers, to push past the boundaries of a visual field. The video component overwhelms the viewer with expanded topologies of dancers’ rippling skin and musculature. These familiar moments of tension and release alone elicit a sympathetic, bodily response from their viewers. The haptic elements intensify this visceral effect, as the viewer becomes a corporeal mirror for the illuminated bodies.
