Φ (Phi) (2016) is inspired by the slowly changing, repetitive structures of minimalist music, and their incremental alteration of perception. In constant duet, two dancers phase in and out of unison with slight variations in timing while a lighting installation continually wavers between light and shadow, and a spatial sound pool emits shifting, electronic soundscapes. Φ (Phi) creates an atmosphere where image, sound, and movement are continually interwoven into a striking, cross-sensory experience, redefining the architecture of the body and space.
