Project T, T for Taut. Making of the Video
Collaboration with Leigh Tredger
My initial idea for the video was to get into the Ortokoy House, the house Taut built, existing in Istanbul, and shoot a video of a dancer interacting with the space. After numerous tryouts and a long negotiation failed, I created a virtual space using a model of the Ortokoy House and green-screen animation, and asked the dancer to move, imagining the space.
In the work, the house acts as a moving box, visiting many significant places, works, and ideas in Taut’s life.
