Can we maintain a deep connection to others, and more importantly ourselves, in a digital heavy world with continued lockdown restrictions?

As we become more engaged with technology, we humans are becoming ‘mind heavy’ and are losing the ability to stay connected with our own bodies. Focusing on the human body with the understanding that it is the most expressive vehicle in which to represent the human condition, I am interested in creating artworks that also serve to embody my deeper interests of anatomy, Eastern philosophy, and movement practices. Through performance, drawing, and whilst participating in online dance workshops via Zoom, I have created a video piece, which explores maintaining a physical/emotional connection to a very restricted and disconnected world during Covid-19 lockdown. The fastest way to still the mind is to move the body.
