Z-Lab Gearing Up

The semester here at UC Berkeley is starting up again. I am looking forward to working in the Z-Lab on a new project for the Berkeley Dance Project 2013 Berkeley Dance Project 2013. I will be working with Azin Seraj who will be creating video design for the new work. We started working on the project this past fall term with a group of amazing students from Theater 84: Sophomore Seminar called Perform the Score. This class was part of the campus project called On the Same Page: Fiat Lux On the Same Page: Perform the Score

Here is a little bit about Azin Seraj:

Bio: An Iranian native, Canadian citizen, and American resident, new media artist Azin Seraj explores and navigates the uses of technology as a powerful tool for relating across borders, mapping transnational identity, capturing beauty in the mundane, and exploring self-reflection. Seraj received her BFA with Honors Distinction from University of Victoria, Canada, and an MFA from University of California, Berkeley. 

I will keep you posted about this project as it unfolds in the coming months. The premise of the project is to re-animate the campus photographs that Ansel Adams took while creating the book Fiat Lux: The University of California, Ansel Adams and Nancy Newhall, 1967. We are focusing on the Eucalyptus Grove on the Berkeley campus, working with Anna Halprin's process called the R.S.V.P Cycles.
