C3 (Codes, Choreography, and a Cube) - 2019

C3 is a dance, installation and visual art piece created from algebraic formulas of a cubed structure. Dancers perform the mathematical formula inside the cube, choreographed to the algebraic expressions of the cube itself, with each movement matching a number. Corresponding to the performance and installation elements are handmade cyanotype prints. These blueprints show the algebraic equations and graphs of the choreography.  A 12’ canvas, painted with the code, shows the choreography pattern in long, numerical form.  This work highlights mathematical dance notation.
