    Immerce: A Visual Database

Artist(s) and People Involved:



Artist Statement:

    Immerce is an interactive multimedia system created for a planned visual database of the dances of Merce Cunningham. The system has been defined from a position where one is not seeking solutions with known methods but instead seeking experience and discovery through a process of exploring the unknown. The current version of Immerce is a minimal prototype of the eventual system under development. Consequently, not all of the elements described are fully operational and the archival materials represent only a small fraction of the full database. This prototype is not available for commercial presentation. Funding is being sought to complete the work.
