About the project
"Research shows that 93% of all communication is non-verbal and expressed predominantly through body language. But does body language only work through the human form? This work explores how dancing with a different type of 'body' can encourage a conversation around human creativity in collaboration with technology. Can machines be creative? Can they inspire us humans to a new level of creativity? Can the convergence of art and science lead to incredible breakthroughs that no one has yet imagined? I am also motivated to break down the existing stereotypes by offering another possible image for women in tech. Last year, only 5% of leadership positions in the tech sector were held by women and 19% of works at America's 50 largest ballet companies were choreographed by women. I hope that through these robot dances I can show that one can be a leader in tech and dance and simultaneously be creative and feminine."
