"D A N C E R" By Haley McCormick & Shea Hardacre
"PURE. PERFECT. PLEASING ENOUGH TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE. EACH BREATHE. EACH MOVEMENT. DELIBERATE AND DELICATE. REHEARSED AND REFINED. SHE IS BUT A DANCE. HER."
This releases documents a project and presentation across a variety of mediums, showcasing a moment of tranquility between multiple forms of art. "DANCER" by Haley McCormick & Shea Hardacre is a zine+dvd combo package, which at it's core is a video piece created by HM and scored by Heart of Palm (SH).
Using analog source material, video feeds of a lone dancer and her various physical features, are distorted and warped amongst a variety of colors and textures. A narrative peaks through the static, but held within is her beauty and grace, a crystalline figure gazed upon from afar. A textural piece of sound was created as the backing track, while a delicate piano melody lays gently over top, creating a sense of heavenly wonder but beauteous sadness.
The zine features xerox manipulated stills from the video piece, accompanied by a piece of prose meant to shine a light on the themes and ideas held within.
