One Flat Thing, reproduced

Synchronous Objects is a joint project of William Forsythe and OSU's Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) and the Department of Dance.

"From dance to data to objects, Synchronous Objects reveals the interlocking systems of organization in the choreography of William Forsythe's 'One Flat Thing, reproduced (2000)"

I re-post here from 'Great Dance Blog'
"The main focus of Synchronous Objects is to develop a set of data visualization tools for capturing, analyzing and presenting the underlying choreographic structures and components of Forsythe's "One Flat Thing, reproduced" (OFTr), which premiered in 2000. These visualizations in the form of information graphics, 2D and 3D animations and visual dance scores will provide audiences, students and researchers with new approaches to thinking about and studying Forsythe's intricate, counter-point work.

And also take a look at Many Eyes collaborative visualization application from IBM. Anybody can upload their own data, create a visualization and share it with others."
