Norah Zuniga Shaw from The Ohio State University talking about the development of Synchronous Objects for One Flat Thing, reproduced (the prototype project for Motion Bank which they collaborated on creating) and the research questions that motivated that project such as “How can we teach audiences to see complex choreographic organisation?”
Introducing Motion Bank (5-7 November 2010) was organised to inform the public about the inspiration behind the project and to introduce them to the researchers, designers, artists and educators involved. Staged at The Frankfurt Lab, the event included presentations, round table discussions and workshops. It began Friday evening with a large gathering in the Frankfurt Lab Halle to hear William Forsythe, Christopher Roman, Norah Zuniga Shaw, Nik Haffner, Heiner Blum, Alva Noë and others introduce themselves and their relationship to the project.
