David Carlson, digital video, “616” NTSC
(8 min. 55 sec. running time) 2010

616

Originally 616 began as the concept of visual artist David Carlson. Then began the collaborative process with the Egyptian Composer Ashraf Fouad meeting several times in upstate New York during the summer of 2009. Carlson video taped the Bowen McCauley Dance Company in an improvisational setting at their practice facility in Silver Spring, Maryland in the fall of 2009. Of which the final meeting with the composer Fouad took place in Chicago – January, 2010 where the concepts finally came together taking solid form setting the tone for the completion of the video by the late summer of that year.

memory
movement
structure

-movement, mystery, design: there are only hints at recognizable moments

frame by frame (rapid) the visuals shift back into obscurity, but this time there is the memory

structure: we stand on the whispers of this memory

formation, transmutation, evolution: who were we, what happens - now.
