“at least for a while anyway” is a seven minute video piece, a collaboration between myself and artist Daniel Crooks. I was invited by Carriageworks to create something for 24 Frames Per Second, and the brief was pretty open. The exhibition looks at the juncture of dance, film and visual art and I wanted to collaborate with somebody I hadn’t worked with before. I wanted to work in a way that was a little foreign to me and that might produce something I couldn’t have achieved as a single author.
