Heat Dance (Rooftop 2)

"Heat Dance (Rooftop 2)" is the fourth edition from Benton C Bainbridge's series of video paintings observing hot bodies in motion. Bainbridge shot Kate Griffler's rooftop choreography with a thermal camera in Hell's Kitchen, NYC, and then reworked the video with optical and digital FX in his studio in the Bronx.

Thermographic technology sees only differences in temperature. Optical and digital post-processing further dematerialize Griffler's dance. By observing the heat of bodies in motion, the series offers a primal glimpse into the original visual music: dance.

"Heat Dance (Rooftop 2)" was first shown at the MoMA PS1 Printshop for the ALLGOLD "Commencement" exhibition in 2015.
