(Big Bang by Geneviève Johnson collage with Hubble telescope image of a nebula) Big Bang and Stardust One thing Hubert Reeves wrote long time ago always stuck with me : we are made of stardust (Poussière d’étoiles, Hubert Reeves, Le Seuil, collection « Science ouverte », Paris, 1984.)

April 30, 2021: DANCING WITH YOUR ENVIRONMENT by Geneviève Johnson

It has been 6 weeks since my surgery and I am moving better and better. So I started to dance again.

April 9, 2021: CLOSE-UP: THE MICROSCOPIC CHOREOGRAPHY by Geneviève Johnson

(Opening, photos & edit by Genevieve Johnson) Close-Up Choreography: The Dancing Cells and Fibers The body is often seen as the subject of the dance. With a different point of view, it can also become the location of the dance. My whole body can move in the landscape of a field through out the trees and tall grass. A much closer point of view creates a fragmented body where each part can be the subject …
