Condenser is a multi-channel video installation featuring artist and dancer Riley Watts. Three forms of documentation of Riley’s movements are condensed into one work. I first photographed Watts dancing and made large prints. Watts then danced on top of the large prints creating rips and folds with his movements. Finally, I backlit the distressed prints with video footage from the original shoot. The complex studio setup used to film the final video evokes a deconstructed darkroom enlarger.
