Notes from the Panorama, Carolyn Lazard & Amber Rose Johnson, 7’, 2021 (USA)

Notes from the Panorama combines archival images of Black rest and leisure with an accompanying performance score. While the video portion of the project moves through silent footage of playgrounds, picnics, and Black people in repose, the score guides listeners through a series of gestures that deepen your attention to the relationship between self, body, and environment. These haptic modalities emphasise the experience and memory of physical sensation. Notes from the Panorama aims to slow time and support embodied awareness during major transitions in the pandemic, which has only intensified the need for rest in Black and Brown communities, in particular.
