What follows is a response to "Mind's I," the movement video by Nannette Bertschy and Ann Moradian that was presented this summer in New York City at the World Dance Alliance World Congress and in November at Atelier Z as part of "le mois de la photo" in Paris:
"In Mind's I we are lulled into the beauty of the vibrant colors and textures, slowly seeing that there is a figure playing along, and through and between the tantalizing textures and planes. Reflections fold in on each other as the eye slides from what is to what is reflected until all we know is the edge where these meet. The collage quality of the piece can hold us in a fantastic textured space; but the images of constraint and expunging; of the figure breaking through the psychedelic hedges and vomitting up hearts does not allow a state of comfortable entertainment. Minds I winds and weaves its way between the buried dream space and the place where body meets space--and where touch becomes the raw space where our inner world confronts the sharp lived plane."
