The final ballroom piece has two versions, with and without sound. I will develop the idea to incorporate singing further in the future, at this point it feels clumsy. The imaging of my mother and the machine generated the kind of aesthetic I was looking for. There are still moments of contemplation and gentle reflection and then an unsettling section of quicker movement, which is out of focus at a different pace and some what confusing. The negative space to the room allows all the emphasis to be on the my Mother and the machine. The room enables a framing, it give the space for the presentation of this moving (film) portrayal.
