Universal Everything Matt Pyke 🔶 Presence 5.2
Presence consists of a series of large-scale video pieces of motion-captured dance performances that create abstract forms with a human presence. A collaboration with choreographer Benjamin Millepied and the LA Dance Project, the work continues Universal Everything’s line of enquiry into the essence of choreography, movement and the human form.
Commissioned by Media Space London for their inaugural exhibition, Presence turns the screen into a stage, the body into an abstracted sculpture. Experimenting with various materials and forms, the life-sized moving sculptures cycle through a randomized collection of “costumes” that range from colorful light trails to crystalline formations, with only the movement revealing the human presence within.
