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.
