This event is a combined open lab, talk, and live demonstration. Each 1.5 hour session is designed to showcase multi-disciplinary art making processes that utilize and engage with sensor technology. Live demonstrations will take place as well as an introduction to the history of sensor technology development at Berkeley.A colloboration with Theater, Dance and Performance Studies; Cal Performances; Berkeley Center for New Media; Center for New Music and Audio Technologies; Music; Art Practice; and the ARC | Arts + Design Initiative, Change and Stillness is part open lab, part talk, and part live demonstration. This event will showcase the multi-disciplinary art making processes that utilized and engaged sensor technology for a new piece in this year’s Berkeley Dance Project, where sculptor and alumni Bruce Beasley’s Rondo sculptures are being choreographed via large-scale projections.

This event encourages artists, makers, dancers and classes that meet on Friday afternoons to take part in this made@berkeley event on Friday, April 22. Students will engage with the technology directly, talk with artists and researchers from Berkeley Center for New Media & the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies working with sensor technology, and engage with computer programming teams working on several campus projects. The formal choreographic version of the piece is part of Berkeley Dance Project 2016, presented by the Department of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies April 21-30, 2016 in Zellerbach Playhouse.
