Fluxus, from the Latin word for "flowing," consists of many different artists, designers, and musicians who are noted for merging different disciplines and artistic mediums. This movement was most popular in the 1960s, and is often also known as intermedia. Its Avant-Garde style is known for being the "Anti Art" movement under the leadership of George Maciunas. Artists from this movement include Joseph Beuys, Yoko Ono, and Nam June Paik. The main influence-rs on the development of Fluxus were John Cage and his experimental music of the 1950s and Marcel Duchamp, whose Fountain broke the mold for what true 'art' could be.

On a side note, there's a part of me that does't love dance room, only because I'm a choreographer at heart and a minimalist. I've never really been very intrigued by insane lights and shapes and sounds being combined because I've always been a purist when it comes to movement. I'm also a minimalist in general.
Regardless, danceroom is a very innovative work.
The imagery and projections against the movement was really stunning and inspirational. I saw it going so many different ways in my head which made me hungry to try out my ideas on my own. When the dancer was on the ground and the blue light was on the wall being projected, I saw it coming towards her and influencing her movement. What I noticed in the piece was the it was image capture or sorts and you could see her influencing the projection. I think it would be amazing to see an interaction where she is influencing it, however a keyboard watch or something of the like can be used to switch the roles.

We have one song that we're using. It's an instrumental by Rjd2.
Mia has choreographed to it.
I plan to record her dancing in different places. I would particularly like to record her on the DNA spiral bridge at Archer and 13th.
We need a still background for her dancing in which there will be no movement, because we plan to record different takes of her movement and overlapping them on Isadora to create the image of multiple Mias dancing and communicating with each other.
I want to work with a lot of different angles and effects in the recording itself, so that we have a strong base to add effects to on Isadora.
The music provides a really curious vibe to the piece, so I'm really excited.
I don't want to give away the rest though.
We haven't had much of a chance to film yet, because all three of us have been out of town and/or busy with mid term studying. However, we plan to film this week.
