Saturday November 7, 7:30 PM 

The official premiere of four new projects created through the DANCE MOViES Commission, the only major program in the U.S. to support new works that fuse dance with the technologies of the moving image. These projects represent the second round of this commission and encompass a single-channel video installation made from animated 3-D scans of a dancer and three dance films spanning the gamut from Depression-era musical, to love story, to dancing full throttle through city streets. The screening is followed by an open discussion with the artists.

Marc Downie: FIELD Talk and Weekend-long workshop 
Talk: Friday November 6, 7 PM 
Free + Open to the Public 
Workshop: Saturday & Sunday November 7 & 8

Artist and artificial intelligence researcher Marc Downie refers to FIELD not as software, but as an open-source programming environment. Its power and versatility may make it the most radical development in the digital arts since Max/MSP/Jitter. Downie's talk about his creation and its artistic applications will be accessible even to non-gearheads. And gearheads (or code-heads) will get the chance to start navigating in FIELD during an immersive two-day workshop.
