Slow Dancing at Harvard

Slow Dancing, the brainchild of contemporary artist David Michalek, was not developed overnight. After all, the work is rooted in a deliberateness that goes beyond titular acknowledgment. The piece is comprised of more than 40 video portraits of dancers. Each vignette is displayed on a super-sized screen and in hyper-slow-motion, such that a would-be instantaneous gesture can play out over the course of a full minute or longer. The effect is mesmerizing.”
