Instincts and Institutions

Created in collaboration with performers from Norway's Carte Blanche dance ensemble, Tolga Balci's dance for camera piece Instincts and Institutions is composed with a minimalist aesthetic of sharp, black silhouettes arranged across the surface of a vast white canvas. Playing with ideas of perception and scale in digital space as human figures, near then far, combine and overlap in masses of arms and legs, Balci's film is a surreal and edgy interpretation of the nature of physical consciousness.
