OVERSIZED

Inspired by the book “Oddball Ohio”, the OVERSIZED project locates sites with abnormally large sculptures of every day objects.  The idea is to place dancers on the site and capture them moving in the space around or on the large object.  The play of scale and perspective is used to skew the eyes perception of who is larger, the dancer or the object.  This project is ongoing.
