rich people dancing / poor people dancing
11 minutes loop of Youtube videos ordered at random

Rich People Dancing / Poor People Dancing is a compilation of Youtube videos of people dancing, separated in two groups - rich and poor people - screened side by side at a random order.

a dancing body is much more than limbs and skin muscles brain tissues hair blood:
beyond its shadows and its recyclable waste propelled to invisible lands faraway,
acquaintances, abuses, inhaled gas,
our body continues to expand, grow heads, lose leaves and flower,
change rank, shift shape, distance, scars, affiliation and birthmarks

a dancing body resists gravity with every move and
resists inertia with every step and
resists death with every breath

and this is a possible way of looking at what Youtube shows of them
