Breath, vertigo, and falling define distinguishing aesthetics of contemporary video. Showing the body in performance, telling of its vulnerability, imperilling it in an effort to reach irreconcilable thresholds accentuates the problems of balance evinced by slow motion, fast motion, and freeze-frames. Can we speak of strategies or convergences? The author muddles such tracks by dealing with performance and video not in terms of disciplines, but as an affinity between stories, fields of knowledge, and images — whether one lives in Amsterdam, Cologne, Montreal, or Igloolik.
