empathy machine

Artist Residency slowdanger, Cornelius Henke, Char Stiles (2019)

In summer 2019, experimental dance collective, slowdanger (Anna Thompson and Taylor Knight) participated in a residency at the STUDIO to develop “empathy machine”, a full-length multidisciplinary and audiovisual performance that explores social reflexes surrounding intimacy and empathy.

The project features a 20-foot diameter interactive light ring developed by project collaborator Cornelius Henke, aka Projectile Objects, and a custom computer vision tracking system created by computational artist, BCSA alumna and STUDIO artist-in-residence, Char Stiles.
