Portal: World of Awe

2001-05 / 2 mins / Video & Interactive Website

Portal is an interactive net.dance created for the meta-project World of Awe. It follows a traveler passing through a portal that opened on 6th street in Manhattan to a parallel world called the Sunset/Sunrise. The work touches on the spatial and aesthetic relationship between virtual and physical spaces, as well as the relationship between user and digital content.

+++

Cinematic and kinetic, the traveler uses dance as her main mode of communication and means to travel between worlds. This ambiguity between the real and unreal is reflected in the work: analog footage is mixed with digital resolutions as the figure moves from a New York City street to a square “womb” to a digitally created desert landscape. Traditional dance film techniques, as seen in kinesthetic editing and image creation are combined with interactive techniques and screen design.

Portal is a collaboration between media artist Yael Kanarek and dance filmmaker/choreographer Evann Siebens, with music by composer Yoav Gal and programming by Meeyoung Kim. It is a 2003 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., for Turbulence.org with a grant from the Greenwall Foundation.
