Instructions: Track the moving figure. Notice where your eyes go, and how they are distracted or attracted towards the moving figure with the shifting background and foreground. How does sound affect your eyes and tracking of the figure?
Meshes of a Figure is a first exploration for the project Thresholds, an ongoing collaboration which explores sensory processing through sonic, visual and kinetic experiences and through the lens of neuroscience.
Through these explorations Director and Choreographer Beth Graczyk, Composer Aaron Gabriel, and Neuroscientist Guadalupe Astorga aim to create greater awareness of the diversity of perceptual processing amongst us.
