My most current body of work, featuring color guard which is considered a hybrid of dance that has developed from militaristic elements, that is now a performative skill utilized in marching band.  When approaching this subject, I wanted to reflect on elements of the form that allow for this outer extension I feel when performing.  This process allowed for reflection on the subjectivity and objectivity of color guard, utilizing digital elements of video, along with showcasing personal emphasis of materiality in the footage.  Choosing to use archival footage over self-produced content directed my attention to the methods of documentation, and the relationship I have to the content.  Edited with Adobe Creative Suite software, the documentation of the exhibition is below. There are three works featured in the video found below.
