The images mediated by the monitors share the same "tense" as the live dancers, calling attention to the limited frame imposed by video recording, and provoking the boundaries of perception. To create CHANNELS/INSERTS, Cunningham and Atlas divided the Company's Westbeth studio into sixteen possible areas for dancing and used chance methods based on the I Ching to determine the order in which these spaces would be used, the number of dancers to be seen, and the events that would occur in each space. Atlas employed cross-cutting and animated mattes or wipes to indicate a simultaneity of dance events occurring in different spaces, as well as to allow for diversity in the continuity of the image. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=348582 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
