Jane Gotch performs in collaboration and response to an installation of photography, projection, and sound by Timothy Amundson
The term fugue state is defined as a dissociative amnesia, especially one that involves unplanned wandering. Timothy Amundson expresses that “nothing is actually constant, nothing has been created.” His work is a variant from the representational nature of photography and explores heightened experience, where the unknown is corroborated with references to the everyday. The photographs are immersive and utilize light in ways that question traditional norms of photography. Through this approach there is as much a sense of levity as there is meditational weight. In collaboration with dancer Jane Gotch the more cerebral elements of the images can be explored through the body.
