Between January and April (2014) I spent 4 months at UT Austin as a research visitor. One of my main goals was to get the opportunity to collaborate in multidisciplinary projects with local students at the Theater and Dance department, that I could later user as case studies for my research.

Below  list of projects in which I was involved ::

 

[1] BREAKDOWN
Interactive audiovisual dance performance presented at the Ears Eyes and Feet event in the B. Iden Payne Theater, May 2014, UT Austin Texas. More info at the project page.

“Warning: A Wearable Electronic Dress Prototype” is the result of a series of explorations in possible interactive/reactive technologies for a stage performance costume. More info at the project page.

Exploration of sound visualizations at “Stallion”, a 328 Megapixel Tiled Display System at TACC (Texas Advanced Computing Center). More info at the project page.
