This short video plays with the idea of calling on external forces to assist or bless something. Working with a trained Indian dancer hand movements that signify calling the attention of the Gods to the start of the dance were filmed against a projection of flames from a previously filmed bonfire. The dancers's hand shadow was filmed as it blocked the light of the projection and the gestures have been slowed down considerably to add to their beseeching quality.
it is intended that this video be projected in a darkened space on a loop at many times human scale to aid the notion that the dancer is perhaps beseeching intervention for all.
