Sara Ludy - Daance Dange Daice

Daance Dange Daice is a video montage of AI generated dance images that connect into an expanded display of alienated joy and celebration, as if peering into another world’s party. Originally commissioned for Refraction Festival x Miami Art Week, this collection features 225 distinct works created to align with the rhythms of the dance music while reflecting our connection with each other after a long period of isolation. The title, Daance Dange Daice, comes from AI generated text anomalies of the word “Dance”.
