margins (series) 2016
Liberated, inspired, and challenged by dance floors in Detroit, Michigan; Gin is currently developing a participatory series that will test the prospect of enhancing music induced enlightenment.
Beginning December 2014 she began actively curating dancers from dance floors in Detroit. Individuals who display an obvious freedom by virtue of music are invited to contribute to the development of the work .
Discussion and negotiation amongst each group of recruits will work to define paradigms for the execution of ideal environments for dancing.

Own Rhythm (Play No Sound) 2009 life-size video projection without sound
A life-sized video installation of a choreographed dance routine, based on footage acquired from 24 participants. Roughly 10 seconds from each participants footage was used to choreograph an edited dance routine that the artist then learned. Two images play side-by-side on silent video; the artist in the first screen, replicating the movements of the changing dancers in the screen adjacent.
Stop / Don't Stop 2009 disco-ball & sound on motion sensor

When the viewer leaves the space or fails to move their body enough, the work shuts itself off. Michael Jackson's 'Don't Stop Till you Get Enough' plays on repeat.

Me vs You vs You vs Me 2008, video installation with sound
Two towers face each other, each holding a speaker and a video screen. A 42 second audio clip plays on loop. In one monitor is video footage of the artist dancing alone for the duration of the audio clip. The other monitor shows footage of her partner also dancing alone. Over-laid on the original footage, is footage of each person trying to identically replicate the dance moves of the other. Five separate attempts at dancing like one another are shown.
