Dance & video piece
Collaboration between a choreographer, a video artist and a scientist created a piece investigating the point of interface between the technological alienation and the human existential anxiety state.
Choreographer Maayan Liebman-Sharon, video-artist Yaara Nirel and Dr. Ofra Benny, studied over the past year the synthesis of nanoscience and visual art.
The living body is examined under the lens of microscope - enlarged, duplicated, dismantled and creates a molecular complex world, remarkably close to the chaotic reality in which we live in.
The work was created as a part of the “Nano-art” project, that combines art and nanoscience, initiated by The Jerusalem Municipality, The Hebrew University, Machol Shalem center, Hazira and Maamuta.
