Exhibition Information

Group exhibition curated by Camina Correa & Vanessa Olivarez
Video Projection
CSULB School of Art, Werby Gallery

This week my artist conversation happened through movement and light. I was inspired by the use of projection in Carmina Correa & Vanessa Olivarez’ group exhibition and used it as a source to generate a story through dance. I performed my story in front of several fellow classmates, and used the background noise and the music from the artwork to create a rhythm. Meanwhile the light from the artwork created images of color on my body.
