Conronting the Negative

My initial site explorations brought to my attention the negative values of place; litter, graffiti, vandalism and neglect. What if we were to reinterpret these values and make them a positive experience? In a similar sense, what if the same were to happen to our perceptions of dance? If the static became as relevant as the fluid - sometimes the stationary is as important as the mobile, it is only through the existence of that which is still that we really begin to appreciate that which moves.
