My new collaboration with visual artist David Michalek is Groove, a video installation commissioned by the International Center of Photography, which will be exhibited in the front windows of their new building.
Groove pays tribute to the thousand faces and characters of New York City featuring a selection of extreme-slow-motion individual portraits of men, women of all age, shape, sizes, ethnicity, gender, cultural background, profession and from all walks of life.
The project will celebrate the diversity of talents who nurture and expose their creativity in New York City as well as community leaders, committed volunteers and everyday heroes who contribute to our life with their substantial work.
Participants will be DANCING individually to a music they will be inspired to move to in front of a vivid background wearing their uniform (nurse, fireman, policeman …) or traditional costumes (if it is part of their everyday life) or regular clothes they wear daily at work.
This improvisational, natural and very personal dancing will eventually be stretched into a ten-minute silent slow-motion portrait.
