Bodies feed desires and needs, move toward and away, with rehearsed precision and in free-form. Bodies breach. Bodies collude to create larger bodies, often in assertion against other bodies. Bodies want, and want again.

 

David Green collects videos from the internet, digitally eviscerates them, and then recomposes their constituents into scattered assemblages. His video proposition investigates two modes of bodies in action – political and sexual – in two manners: choreographed and improvisational, using projected light to split each view five ways in the gallery space.

 

“Considering the behaviors of bodies might help us begin to grasp our larger embodied predicament”, says Green.

 

Bodies in Time distils, fragments, and redistributes images of performing bodies to model aspects of the creatures we present ourselves as, and perhaps are, in the inescapably bounded world that our bodies are overwhelming.
