TEXT/ Spatial-Temporal Gesture, 2020


Buttner, transforms her interpretation of gesture, into a spatial-temporal gesture structure, creating an environment that virtulises a project of interactive viewer behaviors.  This work considers how Gesture can be an unconventional, de-authorised form of action, locating the body, at the interface between linguistic and performance, the gesture becomes event, motion and stillness a decomposition of the speech act.
