Crookshank Geometry, by Ellen

The symmetry and geometry in the Stanley Academic Quad is unmistakable. From the slantinng rooves of the surrounding buildings to the intersecting paths, the shapes and angles create a visually dynamic environment for a performance piece.

I wanted to find positions in which we could align our bodies with the natural lines in the space and in doing so, make the symmetry more palpable to both performers and viewers. We rotated between tangents, parallels, and skews creating what I hoped would be a meditative kaleidoscope effect. We listened to the water and moved together through the cycle of the poses—each one ending by walking in a complete circle around the fountain.

I want to thank Jessica and Tera for fliming and photographing and the performers. I hope everyone is no longer sore :-).
