The word 'hyper' is derived from the Greek 'above, beyond or outside’. In mathematics, hyper is used as a prefix, to denote four or more dimensions. Specifically, this work explores the possibility of passing to a fourth dimension wherein perception of past, present, and future becomes more fluid. This video was created in residency at Studio 303 Interdisciplinary Performance Center in Montreal on dance artist Matthew Waldie.
The HYPER_ series began at Studio 303 (Montreal) during a month long residency in June 2010, since then work has been developed in residency at Latitude 53 – Center for Visual Culture (Edmonton). Upcoming in July 2012 the series will benefit from a residency at EMPAC – Experimental Media & Performing Art Center (Troy, New York).
