<p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px;"><em>Stardance</em><span> is a video-art piece exploring the relationship between our perceptions of the future and the past.&nbsp; Using a live mix between the videos, <em>Star Wars </em>and<em> Dances with Wolves</em>, a new space is created whereby the live action mix dances between one created story of the future past and another story of the romantic past set in the American West.&nbsp; Through the live mix, the distortion created suspends the linear nature of the original movies, and presents a new arena where we begin to question our views of "new world", "exploration" and "record".</span></p>

<p style="margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px;"><span>Thomas Isaac is an artist who lives and works in California.&nbsp; He is deeply fascinated by the intricacies and mysteries of the universe.&nbsp; As an avid sci-fi geek, and former fat kid, he spent his formative years making art, playing video games and watching every science-fiction movie ever made, while on the Navajo Nation no less.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ( Trust me, this is true, he used to work at a video store )&nbsp; Art, for him, is akin to magic, somewhere between Merlin-esque and Shaman-esque ( his grandfather is a true medicine-man/shaman ) .</span></p>
