‘Free Space’ "Free Space" is the title for a series of collaborations between Alban Elved Dance Company and scientists from different universities. The concept is to join artists, engineers, and humanists to explore how technology might expand human creativity and how forms of creativity might offer insights into expanding technology -- a reciprocal event for the artists and scientists as well as for and with the audience and performers. Each collaboration is unique, covering a variety of topics.
The first production, entitled "Free Space: The Distance Between Things,” took place in 2002 at Duke University as a collaboration with the Fitzpatrick Center for Photonics and Computer Programming. This collaboration focused on the use of several specialized camera arrays and projections.
