In The Dirt

In the Dirt is a 6 minute bicycle-operated film by Tin Gamboa, dancer and movement-based filmmaker, and Forest Borch, musician and composer. The two believe that the intermingling of music, dance and film can spark conversations, ideas, and positively rooted change.

This work was originally commissioned for Vines Art Festival, in Vancouver. It was presented as an installation, in collaboration with Forest Borch. The installation involves a pedal generator that powers the screen that shows the film. An audience member operates the pedal generator, adding a physical component to the auditory and visual and experience. Its goal is to allow the audience to ruminate on their relationship to land and ask questions such as: How much is land a part of my identity? How much do I take from land? How much do I give back to it?
