Movement Material

- I will use this occasion to address an issue that is currently present in my artistic work. I have previously engaged in the material aspect of the body (and still do) but my inquieries have now led me to wonder about the of the material status of movement. Where does movement reside when it is not materialised, or where is the dance when it is not danced? Stored as a memory? A potentiality? Or static energy waiting to become kinetic?
