Work of art I would like to make

If i was chosen as one of the New Sensations I would produce a piece of work similar to my degree show piece (Body n.2, Composition n.3). I very much enjoyed my way of working throughout the making of the piece and would be enthusiastic to do it again if given the opportunity. The process is rather a specific one. First, I make a body cast after having carefully chosen the position. At this step of the process, I take multiple photographs of myself or other dancers in different poses. In order to choose the most interesting pose, I experiment by make collages with print outs of the photographs. When the cast is accomplished, I work with it in its surrounding space. I include props, a projection and sometimes sounds. At this stage of the process, I almost take on the role of a choreographer, trying out different compositions until I find the one which successfully creates a dramatic scene and a stark visual impact. I enjoy working in dark spaces; the ambient light which emanates from the projection casts shadows on the still body cast and gives the impression of movement. The installation becomes like a "tableau-vivant" that seeks to creates an immersive and dream-state experience.
If chosen to produce a work for the New Sensations I would be open to work in either a dark or light space and would need power supply; Due to the nature of my work it is preferable that I see the exhibition space before executing the work.
