Merce’s Isosurface [openFrameworks]


Four artists — Brian Knep, Golan Levin, Casey Reas and Sosolimited — were invited to independently re-purpose Merce Cunningham's dance performance data into new digital forms. Motion capture information of Merce Cunningham's performance has been released as open source data by the Cunningham Foundation and OpenEnded Group. Golan Levin used captured coordinates of Cunningham's fingers and knuckle joints to create a twitchy, fleshy blob. As with any motion capture data, the collected information is inevitably human. Golan's piece Merce's Isosurface posses these same qualities, that adopt organic, lifelike properties of the original source.
