I, Move

Chia-Ling Lee


I, Move (2011-2012) presents human ordinary physical movements which are seen in everyday life, such as walking, sitting, standing, talking, smoking, and so on. Computing technology has shaped the state of our present day: making every moment happens quickly but fades just as quickly. Slow motion sequences of I, Move let these common movements are able to be easily preserved and observed in digital formats. Through slowness of the three performers’ body movements, I, Move reflects on our high-speed society.
