In Bebe Miller’s composition class. To make a solo dance that explores the dynamic, expansive use of weight through and around the body of the performer. To observe the structure of the solo and of its process. To translate or exchange that experience from a body to a digital artifact and back into another body. To allow these objects and these processes to influence/inform each other along the way. That’s what I’m starting to try to do with this project (while also tackling some virtual/augmented reality design challenges).

This semester I’ve been taking a class at ACCAD with Jeremy Patterson called Interactive Arts Media. It is essentially a web design class, but I’ve been fixated on emphasizing the “Arts” part of the class description (which is kind of how I approach all of my work).
Inspired by sites like superbad.com and feedthehead.net, I have been working on a web site that treats the medium as something other than a container for words.
What I’ve made so far could be categorized as a toy, which I think I’m ok with. Toys are designed to encourage play, curiosity, and imagination. Hm. I’m having Candace Feck “at the point of utterance” moment. Maybe toys are actually exactly what I am most interested in making.
Here’s a link to the site in progress:
