Since the 1980s, I have been working with oil painting. In Klang-Farbe- Bewegung (1989), I projected images of my paintings on dancers. I then started to take still photographs of the dancers in the image projection and incorporated them into interactive sound panels for Tell Me! . . . a secret . . . (2007). In the dance piece Polyvision (2009), I transferred the image world into video and experimented with the relationship of moving paintings and choreography.

This installation, The Other Side, is a collaboration with the Harvard University Dance Program. Harvard students developed poses and characteristic expressions through improvisation.

Many thanks to Jill Johnson, the director of the Harvard University Dance Program, and the following dancers who are featured in the exhibit: Lauren Balbus, Irineo Cabreros, Melanie J. Comeau, Stella Gaitani, Naze-a-ru Gonzalez, Bex Kwan, Megan Murdock, Sofie Rose Seymour, Tsung-Yun Tzeng, and Rossi L. Walter.
