On average, we blink 10 times a minute. What is lost in these dark moments? Blinking illuminates the missed sight, splintering dance into tiny moving stills and the hallucinatory cinema of the back of the eyelid. In his book, Blink, Malcolm Gladwell describes automatic mental processes that instantaneously produce conclusions from flashes of information, concluding that too much information interferes with accuracy. What are the stories accumulating in the blinks of a day? What do you see in the momentary? What do you know? Fresh from a sold out premiere at the First-Works Festival, collaborators Jamie Jewett and R. Luke DuBois explore the fascinating human process of understanding pattern, information and perception with a provocative new work by LOSTWAX MULTIMEDIA DANCE, inviting you to enter the waking dream of Blinking, the impressions behind one woman’s eyes.
