Official Selection Film Spotlight
00:07:07 / Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Featuring an array of technical tricks, shifting aspect ratios, and washed-out visuals the color of concrete and lannon stone, the film's cumulative effect is one of time distortion and hypnotic osmosis. A trippy triumph of sound and image." Grant Phipps, Tone Madison
How do you think your film relates to the NBFF 2022 Theme 'Dancing Around the World'?
Erosion Project features a Chinese performer dancing uniquely in a particular architectural context in Madison, Wisconsin, USA
What do you hope to communicate with our audience through your work?
I hope to broaden their conceptions of screendance and to show them unique ways video can interpret dance in relation to architecture. I also hope to showcase the beauty and alien quality of The Humanities Building on the University of Wisconsin, Madison campus. Ultimately, I want the audience to have the experience of being transported to another dimension with its own logic of existence.
Dan Su (born in Kunming, China) creates a hybrid of music, dance, film, and visual art, in a "Raw, Pure & Uncompromising" way. To pursue her artistic vision and expression, she is equipped with multimedia practices: body movement, sound generation, analog and digital processes of still and moving images. Since 2017, she has been working independently in U.S. and Berlin. After she produced a number of stage performance “Roots” (2017), “I EYE I” (2018), and “On an attempt of a chicken soup” (2019), she has experimented with the intersection of media, resulting in for example the long durational performance installation "WHITE WRITE 白写" (2020) on dance and calligraphy, and the commissioned site-specific music and dance performance "TU BE" (2020) which happened on the pipes of the backyard of Gaswerksiedlung. Following her own music production practice, she has debuted her electronic single “Today I Am” (2019), successively released the single "Blue Eyes" and EP "Chicken Soup" (2020), and soon the upcoming new album "Game0: U Think UR Safe". As a sound maker, she attempts to create the dynamic and haunted space that challenges the listeners.
