Synopsis
Hi-Res
is based on the eponymous dance performance by Maja Delak and Mala Kline. The video poses questions as to the limits of representation in contemporary art and dance. Just to what extent can the dancing body generate meaning?

Hi-Res
plays with the tension between action and contemplation and between boredom and dizziness. All of which are perpetuated through the analysis of the global capitalist system and its performative politics.
