During spring semester in Billie Lepczyk’s choreography course, students were introduced to an experimental choreographic project that blends dance, images, text, sound/music, and clips through the tool of technology. The ten students enrolled in the class representing eight different majors expressed issues of concern through their choreographic projects. Choreography was videotaped from five different perspectives.
This project aims to create a learning environment that is a hands-on, mixed-reality exhibit of the human experience in the contested landscape of World War I. Working in collaboration with French partners, David Hicks and his team plan to create an experience which leverages the ICAT Cube to impact a sense of what life was like for the people who lived and died during that terrible period in world history.
The Moss Arts Center Projection Mapping Project took place January 28 - 31, 2016 in the interior stariwell inside the Moss Arts Center. The team utilized the unique upside down staricase geometry above the stairwell to project onto the surface. A 10-15 minute looped light show was shown on the ceiling surface and was accompanied by a soundtrack played simultaneously.
