Artist Statement:


    Chrysalide transcribes different states of the Japanese dance, But6.
    Mixing 30 animation and film, the work contrasts this carnal, visceral
    dance with the coldness of 30 and its architectures and polygons.
    iki – [breathing]
    Fully created in 30, iki symbolizes the dancer’s breathing by altering
    his dance and rhythm to the complete destruction of the body.
    mono – [matter]
    As the dancer interacts with the elements of nature, the filmed
    footage of mono blends with the computer generated textures to
    create new matter.
    ugoki – [movement]
    Movement slows and merges with a maniacal, exhausting attempt to
    achieve perfection. A controlled walk brings the body to dysfunction .
