A human figure possesses the neutrality of an artistís lay-figure. When it is situated within a plain white space, the compositional possibilities are vast. This work explores the process of becoming - the apprehension and delineation of the motif in the raw material. The setting is variously presented as an actual environment and as a series of virtual ones - flat plane, cube, total space, pure and absolute light. The human figure is a canvas of varying sizes and surfaces upon which short bursts of abstract animations, light and fragments of sound collude to project their various messages. As the piece progresses, the figure begins to assume a variety of guises, as references to religious iconography, nonfinito statuary, classical dance, cubist and minimalist painting are all projected, perceived and lost.
