Inhabit the Dream is commissioned by the Halprin Landscape Conservancy and performed in the Keller Fountain, designed by architect Lawrence Halprin, in Portland, Oregon. The work explores the ephemeral nature of dance and memory through light and time to cinematically construct afterimages–an image that continues to appear in the eyes after a period of exposure to the original image. These afterimages trace the dancer’s movement as they are marked in space. The dancers, like the water in the fountain, eventually evaporate.
