Anarchy in the Organism: Live


We’re in the process of doing the final software tweaks and test runs for Simeon Nelson’s Anarchy in the Organism, which embarks on a sporadic but select tour next week. Musical score is by Rob Godman, played by the Goldfield Ensemble.

Thinking with the Body


The Wayne McGregor | Random Dance exhibit Thinking with the Body opens at the Wellcome Collection this week. The selection of exhibits includes a running installation of Becoming.

Added, 2013-09-16: there’s a promotional video on YouTube:



We’ve been working with Wayne McGregor | Random Dance and OpenEndedGroup on Becoming, an algorithmic “virtual dancer” that grows and evolves in response to emulated mechanical constraints and to a database of film material. The “dancer” is partially controlled by a responsive web-based front end built on Backbone.js, Hiccup, Clojure and ClojureScript. (The front-end code is available on GitHub.)

Becoming is currently being used in the studio in the making of Atomos, which premieres in October. Becoming will also be shown as part of the exhibit Thinking with the Body at the Wellcome Collection, opening September 19th.
