Virtual Waltz

Virtual Waltz

Dance steps were drawn on the pavement outside Gateshead town hall and then members of the public were invited to do either the leading or the following steps of a short piece of waltz. I then superimposed them together using masks in After Effects so that it looks like they are forming a dancing couple. This was a lot harder to cut together than I thought. I liked the idea of people across the time of the day, dancing isolated, which is often seen as a lonely thing, almost as if a person was an outcast, but in the video are joined together, which kind of reflects how digital culture can bring people together in virtual social networks.
