This is an example video of a clear description of a sense perception (from the one in a position of an articipant) which turns into a clear and precise action (by the one in a position of a performer). In this video you can see how the precise description will cause the performer to create a precise action.
This phase in the main exercise of the workshop (phase 5 in The Exercise Through Line) will later be developed into a participatory action and one which addresses feeling, emotion or affect.
This video is a good example of the basic form of this phase in the exercise through line both in terms of capturing this particular moment in the exercise on video and in terms of description of the sense perception and consequent action. It shows both the description of a sense perception and the following action from the points of view of both the articipant and the performer. The description is precise enough and the action is clear. The action creates a sense of wholeness having a clear beginning and an end. The clarity and precision of the description of the sense perception creates a good starting point for the action which in turn is then well rounded.
This clip also shows the main recording method by which I aim to show the points of view of both the performer (here shown on the left) and the articipant (here shown on the right) simultaneously in order to show how the process of perception is experienced from each point of view. In further analysis I aim to use this recording set up to analyse how the impulses move between the actor, the articipant and the environment. In this video the element of participation doesn’t yet come about in an explicit form, but the clip is a good example of what I mean by the precision of the perception/action and how I use the two GoPros to show two points of view to the same situation simultaneously
