CPA [Consistent Partial Attention]

New work by Freya Björg Olafson
 
CPA [Consistent Partial Attention] is a paradoxical meditation on what it means to be present in our contemporary screen-obsessed world,” says Freya Björg Olafson of her new intermedia work premiering February 18 in Winnipeg.
 
Featuring performers Lise McMillan and James Phillips, CPA presents digital dances for the camera that are expressions of the contemporary self and that are used in the construction and representation of the self in the digital community.
 
“Work with video continues to define my praxis, typically it is front and centre as a visual partner in my performances. Throughout the development of CPA [Consistent Partial Attention] I navigated two challenges; to allow video to dictate the work although be minimally revealed to the audience as well as for me to only occasionally grace the stage. Previously, I have created numerous works as a solo artist – it has been a gift to work with the talented dancers James Phillips and Lise McMillan in the studio researching and developing CPA [Consistent Partial Attention].”
