Are you a person in love with science and technology, or dance and photography?
When I first was asked to cover Dark Room I leapt at the chance to expand my horizons, and after doing some research, I realised that this dance piece is very exciting and innovative. Established by Body Narratives Collective, Dark Room is based on dance, science, technology, and photography. Knowing that, my level of interest was piqued, because I love the concept, and as mentioned in a previous post, I have a dance background.

For this particular post I have an added interest in technology and photography, which started from a young age. I have always been the one taking pictures and was the first one in my family to buy the latest technology gadget. I am now very curious to see how it will come to light, and if there is one thing I have learnt, it is that in dance anything is possible.
Dark Room has cleverly taken gallery walls and captured the images to reveal the photographic process as a performance medium, whilst utilizing photographic techniques. A short-lived dance is captured through a variety of tools to become objects of art. A range of old technologies paired with new designs highlight the tension between old and new in our daily lives.
