American artist Charles Atlas is a known pioneer in developing media-dance, also called 'dance for the camera'; merging the camera medium and performative arts into a hybrid. His known collaboration with Merce Cunningham from 1975 to 1981 had him create 10 dance films.
Atlas' 40-year career as a filmmaker and video artist often had him exploring the relationships between visual art, dance, music, theater, and television. His experimental narratives from the 1980's fused fiction and documentary approach to stylized portraiture of urban subcultures.
In his trilogy "The Illusion of Democracy (2008-2012)", Atlas moved away from the human body and focused on numerical figures, animating and contracting the universe with 6 digits. The six numbers are his protagonists, and they are choreographed via installation. Atlas' aim is to push the limits of the numerical figures, in light of the society highly relying on algorithms and technology.
