About compudanzas

compudanzas is a research project aimed at the development of alternative modes of computation.

we re-imagine computation and its implications, by enlarging to a human-scale and slowing down to a human-speed the processes that give rise to what is understood as computing.



through our experiments we ask: what happens when computers are dances, rituals, games, instead of closed electronic boxes with a high environmental and social cost? to what extent can we re-appropriate computational thinking to inspire other ways of being in the world? 

research


our main project consists in developing computational dances: playful activities for workshops and the stage where we as human participants become a computer by following logic instructions.

we learn, perform and teach them and also write about them in english and spanish.



we complement this research with the development and drawing of coloring computers: non-electronic computers that work when you color them according to a simple set of rules.



support


compudanzas as the practice of making computation tangible in dance and paper has been a dream project of mine for many years now.

i have decided to transition towards giving the project my full attention and energy.

with your help, we can achieve this!

thank you very much!
