We built a super-suit for a classical ballet dancer so she could dance a duet with her own movement data using the client’s software!
Beyond getting to work with some of my favorite old and new creators on this project, by far my favorite part was the rehearsal when we caught a handful of little dancers from the afternoon class next door peering in through the glass studio door.
How wonderful to think they may’ve been inspired by — or, better yet, taken for granted — that excited glimpse of a traditionally femme role in the context of engineering and technology.
You can watch Elastic’s lovely mini-documentary of “the ballerina project” here.
