A fashion designer creates a custom garment for a dancer, who improvises movement in the centre of a circle of potters. The potters simultaneously create works in response to the movement of the dancer and the forms created by the garment.
slip = movement = slip = garment = slip = clay = slip = paper
This film shows the initial making stage as described above, there will be a concluding performance in the future as below:
The finished fired pots will be exhibited and performed by the dancer, for an open still life / life drawing session. A group of artists are asked to participate, documenting the event in book form.
