GINSLOV MEDIA STUDIO is a dance media production company that creates moving imagery to expand the creative possibilities for contemporary dance and to augment experiences for the audience through the use of digital and mobile technologies, with an emphasis on Screendance, AI and AR. By combining choreographic, technological and philosophical experimentation, we aim to create works that amplify embodied experiences and somatic resonances, that ripple across the field of technologies and bodies, to create a Mixed Reality. To do this, we collaborate with talented individuals from both local and international communities who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the process of creating transdisciplinary works that leave a lasting impression on audiences. We produce both self-initiated and commissioned projects and create works with dancers, artists, engineers, philosophers, composers, and researchers, to name but a few. We also provide services for dance video creation and produce media content for AR campaigns or installations, in addition to offering substantial curating, teaching and mentoring expertise.
GINSLOV MEDIA STUDIO is a registered company based in Malmö, Sweden.
MORE ABOUT US
Jeannette Ginslov (PhD, MSc, MA) is a dance and media artist, filmmaker, lecturer, collaborator and published scholar. Her background combines somatic dance, choreography, video creation and philosophy. This transdisciplinary combination has consistently informed her artistic practice and collaborations where she uses Screendance, as well as, Augmented and Mixed Reality to combine choreographic, technological and philosophical experimentation, entwining embodiment, embodied technologies and materiality: an embodied materiality. Since 2010 she has worked as independent Screendance and video documentary maker, lecturer, producer, and workshop facilitator, and has screened many of her works internationally at major Screendance festivals. She has written and presented more than 20 publications and produced 200+ Screendance videos, created dance documentaries, collaborated on interactive dance works and several Screendance and AR/MR installations.
In 2021 she was awarded a PhD from the Arts and Creative Industries Department at London South Bank University (LSBU) for a study titled, Deep Flow: a tentacular worlding of dance, biosensor technology, lived experience, and embodied materials of the human and non-humankind, funded by the university. Before that, she obtained an MSc in Screendance from the School of Media Arts and Imaging at the University of Dundee, Scotland, for a study on The concrete and the digital: Emotional and kinaesthetic amplification of the authentic and digitalised body in Screendance and an MA in Drama/Choreography from Rhodes University, South Africa, for a study, The Dance Factory: Newtown, Johannesburg, ‘a site of resistance’.
From 2010 to 2022 she collaborated on Screendance and AR projects with the Living Archives Project, Malmö University under the titles: AffeXity (2011), AffeXity: Passages and Tunnels (2013), Conspiracy Archives (2020) and CATALYSTS: Somatic Resonance (2022). Ginslov has founded three companies: Screendance Africa (Pty) Ltd, Walking Gusto Productions - Multimedia Dance Theatre, South Africa and in 2023 GINSLOV MEDIA STUDIO.
Her current research explores somatic, digital and embodied materialities, by exploring the use of video within Augmented and Mixed Realities, to encourage people to immerse themselves in a merging of their inner and outer worlds, connecting the human and non-human, through the digital and physical worlds around them. She continues to practice Deep Flow, her embodied movement practice which combines: embodied movement, with choreographic, technological and phenomenological experimentation, using biosensor, digital, and embodied technologies. She lives in and works in Malmö, Sweden.
