ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
5th Choreographic Coding Lab
September 14-19, 2015
Hosted by Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA (CAP UCLA) in partnership with UCLA Design Media Arts (DMA)
The Choreographic Coding Labs (CCL) are an international series of events offering digital media ‘code savvy’ artists the opportunity to translate aspects of choreography and dance into digital form and apply choreographic thinking to their own practice. This is achieved through contact with a growing collection of data resources and tools emerging from research in the field of dance on the documentation and analysis of movement ideas and structures with world leading choreographers and dancers. The results of the series so far range from prototypes for artworks to new tools and plug-ins for working with dance-related datasets.
The week will be enriched by interactions with experienced local choreographers and members of the Motion Bank research team. The organizers of the CCL will facilitate internal exchanges, documentation and open-door moments. The CAP UCLA/DMA @UCLA space and equipment will be freely provided.
With the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CreativeApplications.net, NODE - Forum for Digital Arts, Processing Foundation and the Surdna Foundation.
