Work in Progress
In dance, gravity is often associated with ascension / descension and dancer's connection with the floor. Su Wen-Chi is collaborating with physicist Diego Blas to embody the principle of gravity in dance/sound/light. During her residence at EMPAC / Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, SU and her collaborators explore how live interaction between a dancer, EMPAC’s Wave Field Synthesis Array, and light might open possibilities for illustrating the effects of gravity as floating and suspension in outer space.
