In Between Dances
00:00 / 14:13

We easily experience the magic of being captivated by a particular moment. In the silence, just before a song ends and moves onto the next one, there are moments in which tears burst. Some moments knock and break the shell of our emotions. As a way to ponder this knocking, Yuchae Lee experiments with photo motion—a technique of stop motion using varied imagery. In Between Dances, is designed to explore the intersection of photography and videography, and the expandability of the ‘in-betweenness.’

 

Blink your eyes. First, quickly. And then, very slowly. Did you see the gap? The inner world? The infinity? ‘In-betweenness’ is the link between the beginning and the end. It is simultaneously the beginning and the end, yet in denial of both. The cycle of life and death is born and expanded from these small moments of gaps. Time goes by without hesitation, and space inevitably transforms accordingly. In Between Dances is an attempt to study the change: From a still of flux—a photographed image—to a repetition of memory fragments—and to a spatiotemporal loop, newly born by the repeated act of “viewing.” As soon as you start reading this text, you also become a part of the collective experience. By watching the repeated scenes from the past in present time, the friction between the two space-times creates a unique dimension of its own. In Between Dances invites you to immerse your senses into this moment of ‘in-betweenness’ through works of moving images.
