Dust is informed by your interest in the combination of choreographic thinking and digital art creation. What was it that sparked your desire to investigate the principles behind the creation of movement?
Mária: I was dancing when I was little, so the interest in movement is somewhere deep inside me. Later, when I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, I became curious about how to visualise what I experienced physically. I enjoyed capturing bodies in motion, but I felt like there may be a better way to represent the physical sensation. I started to look more into digital art and explored different sensors.
When I experienced Andrej’s virtual reality installation “Forest” (2014), I felt that VR could work really well in the context of dance. It was as much of a physical experience as it was visual one. So that was the starting point for our collaboration and the desire to explore dance within a VR environment.
