Moira Holohan: EDO 2021

In the latest installment of our ongoing video channel series, EDO, Moira Holohan’s video Head to Toe, 2017 combines the innocence of the children’s song “Head to Toe,” with the repeated pattern of gesture. Head to Toe, 2017 touches upon repetition as a form of self-assurance and as a reminder of our body as matter that we sense, know and own. Reaffirming where the body is and becomes the acknowledgment of one’s existence.

This video involves a three-step process that combines both high-tech and low-tech approaches. It shifts from video documentation of performance to a material flipbook that is both collaged and painted on, to a final digitally altered video. The manual hand alterations of the video reinforce a meditative process and craftsmanship marking both time and material. Video editing adds an additional layer that embraces the ephemeral nature of all material.

Organized in collaboration with time-based visual artist Barron Sherer, EDO (aka Emerson Dorsch Online) frames an expanded web presence that can shapeshift into a broadcast channel for temporary exhibitions and an archive of content related to the participating artists’ work. We choose to highlight exciting and serious work that is particularly suited to this time. EDO aims to augment how we navigate the internet during the practical and functional parts of our day in a way that makes stumbling across online content more akin to stumbling upon an unexpected performance in the park.
