Video short documentary "LightSpin" by Eric Paré, and "Suspended" 2013/14 premiere episode of "The Dewarists-India" exploring duality themes through light/music/vocals

Watch "LightSpin" the story by Eric Paré of how he managed to take half a million pictures of contemporary dancers in the dark using light-painting, stop-motion and bullet-time techniques. Technical constraints and limitations of working in a 360 degree environment narrowed the visual possibilities, and brought to life the LightSpin signature and flow - after months of trials and errors in complete darkness.

LightSpin is an experimental photography art project that finds its source in a unique light painting technique. Performers are improvising contemporary dance movements at the center of a ring on which 24 cameras are mounted. Their brief dances are carried out in complete darkness, light being aimed at the subjects as to reveal their shapes and movements, thus capturing their passage in a defined space.
