In this article, a dance of my imagining draws upon topics of embodiment, imperfection and lack of art, political art, implicatedness, boredom and being stupid. Questions of abstraction and records of thought hinge on discussions of disembodied movement, technology and performance. Key choreographic works include Blue Muffins; Bill T. Jones, GHOSTCATCHING; Troika Ranch, and Interactive Installations. Key sources include Susan Kozel’s Closer (2007); Antonio Damasio’s Self Comes to Mind (2012); and Francisco Varela’s, The Embodied Mind (1991). The article explains movement and stillness as bodily enactments that can be arrested and recorded in arts technologies. Such records become part of why we care to make art, and how we make it matter.
