Hugh and Naomi started working together in 2016 as part of her summer residency at OVADA gallery with the pouring of fluorescent paint and corn starch under an ultraviolet light. The movement of the paint was captured to video as it enveloped the contour of her body to initially abstract her form and then gradually illuminate her and bring her out of the darkness.
From this a series of improvised movement sequences were photographed using UV laser light to scan the motion with long exposure photography.
This was further developed to capture more subtle aspects of dance motion using a combination of reflective body paints and carefully positioned fluorescent strip lights, and microprocessor controlled LED lighting to record fleeting reflections as a web of surface textures as they move through time.
