Nita: You’re interested in the doors of perception, but what you’re looking at has more to do with making action in the space, or changing the space, or changing yourself to perceive more or differently.

Lisa: I’m interested in dance behavior. And I’m very interested in what people would probably think of as incidental movements. I’m most attracted to movements that don’t seem to be important. I’m very interested in how the organism relates to the environment. And I see that very clearly when I’m looking at dancers on stages. I’m not talking about fidgeting nervousness. I’m talking about how we carve out something from what we look at to simplify what is before us. We choose, we shape, we reshape each other in our seeing of each other and that seems very efficient both for surviving and for getting very, very distracted from having an original experience or seeing something new. I am interested in the movement of attention.
