This performance was the culmination of a semester-long collaboration between the Dance and Landscape Architecture departments at UIUC. Our group of three dance and three landscape architecture students created a performance in my former apartment in relation to the idea of the transformation of information. The layout of the apartment and the presence of the audience made it difficult to see other performers, which coupled with performers’ varying approaches to dance, made the transformation and loss of information visible. Working with other artists resulted in stimulating discussions about the human body as an active design catalyst, and the potential of collaboration between disciplines in design.
