Synchronous Objects - Successfully Launched April 1, 2009
The Synchronous Objects project was recently unveiled at the Wexner Center for the Arts. In collaboration with world renowned choreographer William Forsythe, ACCAD and the Department of Dance developed an online interactive score projects for the choreographic work of Forsythe's One Flat Thing, reproduced. The team of Ohio State research faculty, graphics researchers and graduate students constructed a new way of looking at dance, one that considers both discipline-specific and cross-disciplinary ways of seeing. The final product, an interactive website, illuminates the underlying structure and mechanics of a complex choreography, exposes modes of perception and attention of both performers and audience and enables new and multiple readings of this work and consequently the viewing of dance in general.
