About the Work

Love Letters, a video projection by Chinese-born, Chicago-based artist Yuge Zhou, portrayed a lively courtship dance between two urban dwellers searching for each other through a labyrinth of colorful geometrics with growing curiosity, electricity and affection. Love Letters features original choreography by Hannah Santistevan, performances by Rebecca Huang and Joffrey dancer Xavier Nunez, computational animation by Mary Franck and Patrick Steppan and sound by Ori Zur. 

"While my solo works often depict simultaneous and ephemeral encounters amidst the rush of contemporary life, 'Love Letters' tells a singular story of connection through dance and technology within my video art. The technical component of the project magnifies the push and pull of the characters in this story as they explore each otherÔÇÖs presence on the larger-than-life canvas of THE MART."
