This video shows a brief fragment of Merce Cunningham dancing (with his hands) in a motion capture system. The video was produced by the OpenEnded Group (artists Marc Downie, Shelley Eshkar and Paul Kaiser) for their LOOPS project (a digital portrait of Merce Cunningham, 2001-2008) and is used with permission.

I was one of four artists commissioned by the 2009 Boston Cyberarts Festival to re-purpose Merce Cunningham's dance performance data into new digital forms. Motion capture and video information of Cunningham's performance has been released as open source data by the Cunningham Foundation and OpenEnded Group for this purpose. The LOOPS project is funded by the LEF Foundation.
