When you awake a goddess, things sometimes are not as simple as they seem.

Model is :iconbrittaniluv: A thousand thanks to Brittani for being willing to experiment and make this work - getting this footage involved her dancing around in front of a fan for about an hour; we didn't really know what this was going to look like and because the slow-motion camera renders light a bit differently, I couldn't set the lights up visually, I had to triangulate on the set-up by trial-and-error.

This was shot with a Casio EX/F100 camera, lit with 2 fotdiox light-panels of 16 CFL bulbs each, velvet background, big fan, grey silk gauze.

To tell the truth I feel like this needs some kind of music to go with it, but I also feel like I'm not up to the task. So maybe you can just play something you like while you're watching it. I'm listening to Tarja's "What Lies Beneath" as I edit this.

absolutely stunning... this could be the preview of a new kind of butoh dance... where not the dancer moves (almost static), but clothes, twigs, accessoires, in short the air surrounding ...
opening new perspecives and possibilities.

love it! I think even it can go without music like Bill Viola's work (if I am not mistaken..) at least you are watching something between the still and a movie.

Mother earth/wind/sea kind of vibe going on here.

These are like photographs, but in motion.
I mean, obviously, but y'know that's the effect :)

Great video, Marcus. The combination of the slow motion and Brittani's graceful movements while modelling are an evocative reason why I think, from an artistic viewpoint, that women's bodies are beautiful. :)

On being able to choose our own music to listen to while watching the video, I went with something that I thought really suited the clip: "Europa", by Gato Barbieri. [link]
