For the piece Rondo Variation: Animating Bruce Beasley’s Ring Sculptures, Wymore collaborated with Bruce Beasley, renowned sculptor and alum of the Department of Art Practice. They developed a dance using sensor technology to create a live dialogue between the dancers and Bruce’s minimalist and elegant rings. The impetus for the project was to activate the majestic large-scale intertwining rings through computer animation and human motion tracking technology. The projected sculptural forms “dance” and articulate themselves - driven by human behavior, gesture, and movement. The rings pass through each other virtually and perform in ways that could not be achieved in the real world.
site for interactive real time collaboration. This project involves choreographers, computer engineers, and visual/sound artists who are investigating presence/co-presence and corporeal and code interactivity within live and media based performance.
