SONDERBAUTEN: THE SPECIAL BLOCK

Credits

Quintan Ana Wikswo’s original films are created in collaboration with composers and choreographers, and designed for stage projection during live performance, or as installations within exhibitions. Projected onto screens, scrims, and public spaces, the films become an interactive presence with dancers, musicians, and actors, as well as audiences and visitors. Whenever possible, the films are projected to scale, so that humans take on a proportional size within the ecologies and architectures of the filmscape.

Wikswo creates her original films through a visual vocabulary drawn from many different cameras – a combination of salvaged 120mm and 35mm still cameras and hand animations, 35mm motion picture cameras, and digital cameras using salvaged vintage lenses.

SONDERBAUTEN is a collaboration between artist Quintan Ana Wikswo (Text, Film), choreographer Alexx Shilling (dance) and composer Isaac Schankler (music). With Andrew Tholl (violin), Anna Lisa Bloth (voice), and dancers Shayna Keller, Sarah Young, Mimi Yin, and Sarah Jones. 

Performance Premiere at Yeshiva University Museum (New York City, 2011).
