The Scrub Solos Series is a collaboration between Belgian video artist Antonin De Bemels and American choreographer Bud Blumenthal. The first step was a session of slow motion improvisations filmed in semi-obscurity with a super 8 camera adjusted to "long exposure" setting (dynamic low light automatic exposure). Using this technique, an interaction occured between the dancer and the camera, between movement and light, leading to a kinetic transformation of the body itself. A soundtrack was then added, after digitalization, and sounds and images were manipulated by the process of "scrubbing" (similar to the record "scratching" techniques of dj's) to transfom and recreate the movements of the choreography.
