High Winds & Slippery Surfaces is a collaborative work between a performer-scientist, a performance-moving images artist and a sound designer. The team aimed to artistically create a kinaesthetic experience in the viewer of a 1min screen-dance film informed by research on kinaesthetic empathy and each collaborator’s discipline. The output is an artistic artefact that has the potential of it being used as a stimulus in empirical research, closing the circle from research to creation to research.   In High Winds & Slippery Surfaces a fleeting body fights to maintain control of their movement as they find themselves in an unstable and unpredictable environment. The film experiments with the friction between physical action, sound and space to awaken the kinaesthetic sense of the viewer. Repeated disruption in the flow of action and sound together with the abrupt changes between involuntary and choreographed movements creates a dark, unsettling viewing experience as the sonically immersive environment takes the viewer beyond the screen supporting a greater sense of awareness of the space surrounding them.
