May dance be automated? Could dance be purely digital? Could something purely digital be unique?

A collaboration between Sois de Traca and a digital machine that generates random gestures, in a quest to explore themes of uniqueness and technology.

The machine is a piece of code created in Processing that acts as a choreographer generating geometrical dancing pieces whose ephemeral gestures are captured and structured by us.
