FI16750.000 This is a colour 35mm print of 103 feet of Morin dancing in backgrounds. This is a test for an idea which we dropped for both aesthetic reasons and because there would have been untold difficulties in marrying the motion of the dancers to the potential motion of the backgrounds. Also, we just had this feeling that the backgrounds were a foreign element, even though as artworks in their own right, they were frequently interesting. Dated 9/6/81
