LightSpin is an experimental photography and art project that finds its source in a unique lightpainting technique. For this project, ten performers improvised contemporary dance movements at the center of a ring on which 24 cameras were mounted. Their brief dances were carried out in pitch darkness, light being aimed at the subjects as to reveal their shapes and movements, thus capturing their passage in a defined space. Pushing the exploration even further, the final result of this project becomes a fully animated, 360-degree representation of movements! Viewed and shared on the Web, the LightSpin project is launched as a world premiere in honor of the International Dance Day.
