Gene Pool#62: Audiograft
Earlier this year I was asked for some ideas of how I could develop my collaboration with Dancin’ Oxford Dance Festival, which takes place every February and March in the historic city.
Up to this point I have produced XTEND, a collection of international dance artist films, which has been shown during the festival for the last two years. So, as a development of last year’s XTEND event where we projected the films large scale onto the walls of Oxford Castle, I devised a project where viewers would encounter the films in specific locations while navigating the City using GPS on their mobile handsets.
I’m really pleased that we managed to get this project approved and funding for it has been included in the dance festival’s overall grant from Arts Council England.
We’re making rapid progress on development, planning the app (which runs on Android and iOS devices). Next week, we’ll begin filming short dance pieces at some key locations in Oxford city. More soon…
