Slow Dancing


Today I am showing a picture of a video installation that took place last month as part of the Lincoln Center Festival. The installation was the work of the artist David Michalek and was called “Slow Dancing.” It featured videos of 43 dancers projected on three 50-foot screens outside the New York State Theater. Each video was about ten minutes long and depicted what was about 5 seconds long in real time . The whole thing was extremely beautiful. I wish the photo did it justice!

Intersting photo! The dancers image looks more like holograms. Cool shot!

I miss the time I had to work in New York in August and had time to stop by the Lincoln Center Out of the Doors...
