Heat Dance (Catwalk 3)

"Heat Dance (Catwalk 3)" is the third edition from Benton C Bainbridge's series observing hot bodies in motion. Using thermal imaging technology, Bainbridge shot Kate Griffler from the overhead catwalk in an empty theater, then reworked the video through multiple passes in his studio.

Thermographic cameras see only differences in temperature. A transitory heat perimeter blurs the boundaries between dancer and space; slowly fading hot spots mark the impact of warm bodies on cool surfaces. Image Processing further dematerializes Griffler's movement. By observing the heat of moving bodies, the series offers a primal glimpse into the original visual music: dance.

"Heat Dance (Catwalk 3)" premieres here on [s]edition.
