My style is Mutant.

As a mutant my power is to project a sequence of images through my body that tells an elaborate story to music. The power to storyboard / ballet / jazz / African / contemporary / bruk up / flex / boogaloo.

My earliest inspirations were stop motion films. And watching the locals get down in Brooklyn. My vision was to bring the golden age of motion picture to the streets. So I concluded that it starts with me.

And, so I aimed to conceptualise all of my earliest street dance battles into theatrical style productions with movie scores and theatrical music. And, as the round began I became this Ray Harryhausen / Tim Burton style creature, but only dancing to music. This was my illusion and my goal was to epitomise this presentation.

Thank you YouTube for allowing us to watch this incredible dancer.

I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.

I believe in the non-existence of the past, in the death of the future, and the infinite possibilities of the present.

J.G. Ballard

When No Means On: Melvin Moti

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

“Aaah, all the paintings are gone! That’s not a problem, I can describe them for you.” During World War II, the museum’s treasures were removed from the Hermitage in St. Petersburg as a precaution against possible war damage. The empty halls are ghostly, filled with vacant frames that allude to the works they once contained and now serve as a kind of “shadow collection”. In 1943, Pavel Gubchevsky, a museum guide, shows a group of soldiers – most of them on their very first visit to a museum of art – through these empty halls. In an attempt to trigger his visitors’ fantasies, Gubchevsky delivers vivid descriptions of the paintings previously on display and so familiar to him. However, never having seen the works themselves, the soldiers cannot perform an act of recollection. They can only create their own images through an exclusive act of imagination, activated by their guide’s vocalization of the artworks. It is the unseen which they are required to render visible.

Bas Jan Ader, 1942 - 1975
Dutch/Californian artist Bas Jan Ader was last seen in 1975 when he took off in what would have been the smallest sailboat ever to cross the Atlantic. He left behind a small oeuvre, often using gravity as a medium.
