Quite possibly my favorite video of all times.
Choreographed by Michael Clark, filmed by Charles Atlas, & music by The Fall.

Hail The New Puritan

Not sure if Charles Atlas will talk about this particular film but I am sure he will talk about his collaboration with Michael Clark throughout the years.

An Evening with Charles Atlas
At MOMA, Modern Mondays, February 18, 2013, 7:00 PM.

New York–based media artist Charles Atlas (American, b. 1949) discusses his creative development, the intertwining of social scenes and art, and his preoccupation with process. Since the early 1970s, Atlas has collaborated with artists, musicians, and dancers—Merce Cunningham, Antony and the Johnsons, Michael Clark, and Mika Tajima, to name just a few—to create films, video installations, and live events that explore “in-between states of identity.” He discusses his recent work, including Joints Array (2011), Ocean (2011), and, most recently, 143652 (2012), in which numbers move across a wall-sized projection as if in a digital ballet.
