    Gesture Piece is a new Pixel Palace commission in development by artist Vicki Bennett (also known as People Like Us). Vicki has collected scenes from hundreds of films containing gestures or instructions, from classic black and white cinema to recent releases. She edited them together to make a 15-minute film consisting of seven chapters, and invited seven sound artists to create a unique film score for each section. The result is a fascinating and witty reinterpretation of familiar film footage, with scenes arranged in incongruous, surprising and often very funny combinations. Gesture Piece was commissioned by Pixel Palace, Tyneside Cinema's digital art programme and supported using public funds by Arts Council England. Gesture Piece will be available online later this year. Find out more at thepixelpalace.org/gesturepiece Background on Vicki Bennett's project at http://peoplelikeus.org/2013/gesture-piece/

      A performance by Mark Applebaum of his piece "Aphasia" (2010) for hand gestures synchronized to prerecorded sound. (There is no gestural tracking with technological means used in this performance; the audio was simply "learned"--old school style...)

        This was another school project. Instead of a music video, however, it was a gesture piece that needed to be storyboarded. It was kind of a first assignment sort of deal to get our feet wet.
