For I Dance Alone the artist observed dance floors from a bird's eye view or what used to be called the divine perspective. Crowds are analyzed as microscopic samples. Zooming into the dancing gestures and anonymous dancing bodies provided extensive knowledge and insight in club culture and its transformation in times of socio-political changes. Dancing crowds are like the clouds in the sky: announcing changing weather conditions or the sensing of times of shifts and urgencies that are about to come. In these dancing/trancing/raves, drugs play a major role.
