This is a very interesting post by Doug Fox and very relevant comment thread:
Danciti and Article19 are discouraging dancers and dance companies from using YouTube. And both are critical of New York City Ballet for creating a new video channel on YouTube.

AN INTERIOR STEEPED IN DISCONTINUITY, WHERE UNUSUAL AND POETIC COMMUNICATIONS UNFOLD WORDLESSLY, THROUGH A CONTAMINATION OF THE SENSES. RATHER THAN A STORY LINE, THERE IS A SET OF TABLEAUX VIVANTS, EACH CRAFTED AROUND A FIXED IDEA, AN IMPULSE, A VOID, A HUNGER FOR AN IDEAL. SILENT ROOM IS A CINEMA OF LIGHT AND… Continue
dance-tech.net went to Eyebeam's Mixer party. This is a short video showing visitors interacting with
drawn - an installation for hands and ink, zachary lieberman (2006)
From Zach's website:
This project presents a whimsical scenario in which painted ink forms appear to come to life, rising off the page and interacting with the very hands that drew them. Inspired by early filmic “lightning sketches,” in which stop-motion animation techniques were used to create… Continue
