Double Negative (work in development) from peggypeggy on Vimeo.

REPLICA examines memory loss, pattern recognition, and perceptual faculties as they apply to the human body. In collaboration with visual artist Daniel Arsham, the piece employs built spaces, objects, lighting, and other media to create the illusion of an expanded space through the use of video and other still images.The work creates situations on stage that could not veritably exist in physical space: this happens through the use of creative geography in video and built spaces, transporting movement to different locations that appear to be just outside the siteline of the audience.

Production:

Commissioned by the Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences (CPNAS), Washington D.C.
