“Integrating Dance and New media: Extending the Aesthetic”
Liz Shea, Clinical Assistant Professor, Kinesiology Department, Indiana University
In Integrating Dance and New Media: Extending the Aesthetic, Liz Shea will examine the use of motion capture technology and the resultant visual artifacts in producing a new dance work with increased movement range and possibilities for dance choreography. The new work, titled “Between the Sun and the Moon,” indeed employs visuals gleaned from motion capture data to create an environment of non-linear memories and multi-dimensional movement. This project also explores the concept of using pilot studies to make informed artistic choices when working with art and technology as well as to develop a methodology for choreographers and other artists when creating works involving new media, based on exploration and informed decision making.
