So I met this guy Keith at Music Hack Day. After bumping into each other a couple times, he emailed me saying that he had seen some of my videos, and wanted to know if I wouldn't mind strapping one of these
to my head and dancing around a bit. So, this is what happened:
Choreography by Sarah Konner. April 2010.
Official music video for Charlie Slick's "You've Got the Job", where I am dancing...manically. Producer/Director/DP/Editor: Marty Stano. June 2010.
Choreography by Melissa Beck-Matjias. Performers: Aidan Feldman and Francesca Nieves. Lighting design by Mary Cole. June 2010.
So this duet was actually set on me my freshman year, dancing with Lara Martin. Melissa re-set it on Fran and I this summer, right after I graduated. So cool to come full circle.
The Site of Circumscription, or Trapped in a Miniature Clawfooted Bathtub.
Robert Alexander's master's thesis, which I choreographed and performed in. May 1-2, 2009. From Rob:
Before you press play, grab a nice pair of headphones or speakers, and turn off the lights. This live performance explores the outer edges of the mind through paradox and circularity, embracing primal beauty in the depths of chaos. The experience unfolds through dance, projection, live music, and real time audio-visual processing. Do not watch If you are prone to seizures. (continued)

This was my team's Lab 1 project for EECS 498 - Intro to Robotics. The lab assignment was to detect balls on a table by processing the frames from an overhead camera, then having the arm pick up the balls and place them in a container.
Update (7/22/10): See photos from the project here.
This is a trailer for Grain of Sand, a videodance piece I was part of this summer. We spent four days shooting in Kent, OH, and I got to hang out on a farm eating like a king and covering myself head to toe with mud with some of the coolest dancers I know. I'll post links to more footage/photos as they come.
