Artist Statement:


    Based on original material from Synchronous Objects for One Flat Thing, reproduced (2009) by William Forsythe, Norah Zuniga Shaw, Maria Palazzi. This installation is on display in the PACT Café.

    In Synchronous Objects, reproduced Norah Zuniga Shaw brings visitors into an encounter with the deep structures of a dance and the generative ideas contained within. A world premier developed for ISEA2010 RUHR, this multipart installation is a spatial and temporal re-imagining of its web-based antecedent, Synchronous Objects created by William Forsythe, Maria Palazzi and Zuniga-Shaw at The Ohio State University’s Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design. Focusing on the celebrated ensemble piece One Flat Thing, reproduced (2000) choreographed by Forsythe, the project reveals the interlocking systems of organization in the dance through animations, interactive graphics, and other parallel virtual manifestations. Choreography is commonly understood as inextricably linked to dancing and to live performance. But both the installation and the screen-based original start from an expanded view of choreography, asking, what else might physical thinking look like?

    By Norah Zuniga Shaw in collaboration with: Marc Ainger, Shawn Hove, Joshua Penrose, Julian Richter, Petra Roggel (Goethe ­Institute München), Benjamin Schroeder, Lily Skove & Stephen Turk.
