David Knight - 20th Mar 2017

This is a film by Michael Gugger that transforms the performance of dancer Jon Ole Olstad in the digital domain, and in doing so explores the curiosity of the human spirit.

Scored by Brooklyn-based duo Live Footage, it was created mostly using DepthKit, a software that records and visualizes 3D depth data captured on an Xbox Kinect. The range of interpretation of the dance footage is marvellous to behold, resulting in an impressively hypnotic piece of work.
