The Body as Muscular Fact:
A project of Yvonne Rainer and David Michalek

The Body as Muscular Fact is an installation for three channels of video
projection and sound focusing on images of the human body moving in extreme
slow motion. Three translucent screens are suspended from the ceiling of a
large, dark open space. Images of the full-length human figure can be seen
projected on the screens, visible from both sides. It is not without
significance that all of the figures will be unclothed, nor is this merely
because clothes offer conventional concealment. More significantly, the nude
figures will be devoid of the usual trappings that signal social position
