Black BodyBlack Body

Body Prints

The body is opaque. It hides an inner body, a body in the shadows, a body that feels.

In physics, a black body is an object whose electromagnetic spectrum depends solely on its temperature.

Stéphanie Fuster’s corps noir is a spectrum. It manifests itself as dissipated heat that increases as she dances.

I imagined Corps noir as a device that reveals the imprint left by body heat. Enclosed in a black monolith, Stéphanie Fuster freezes her dance. Her body appears through contact. The traces it leaves fade away as they cool. Stéphanie Fuster’s body emerges from the blackness, and then is lost in it once more.
