In "Watermotor for Dancer and Camera," Trisha Brown executes a solo in slow motion. Video artist Peter Campus did the camera work. In the editing two takes -- one from the front and one from the side -- were slow-motioned and superimposed. The superimposition was done "on the fly" bringing one or the other take to more prominence as it went along.
