eVokability: Standing Noise
Sarah Drury of Temple University invited three performers to participate in a collaborative project concerning movement and technology. The women she chose were performers with diverse backgrounds, disabilities, and talents.
Performers Lezlie Frye and Shelley Barry, developed specialized gloves that responded to the movements of their arms and hands. As Weis had been studying the act of walking for the previous six years, she developed a pair of specialized shoes.
Temple programmer Seth Erickson fitted the shoes with sensors that sent information back to a computer, which generated graphic images in response to each step.
