Interview – a conversation with curator Khadija Carroll

Choreographed intuitions for miniature loudspeakers and video:  What are viewers intuitive responses to watching the brolgas’ i love you dance and how do they articulate their response to that love, which goes on for a lifetime?  This piece explores the context of first impressions, and how an intuition can be captured in audio.  It is drawn from responses to a brolgas’ dance of love, a video snapshot of their lives spent together as companions. It is a piece which takes a brief moment of love between the brolgas and attempts to capture an audio relation to these birds, placing individuals in a environment of free-improvisation with the filtered gestures of the brolga.  These intuitive visual and sonic readings of the brolga’s dance evolve into an intimate cinematic installation, I love you.
