"Loops" combines the work of the Lab's Synthetic Characters group, Merce Cunningham, and digital artists Paul Kaiser and Shelley Eshkar. A visualization of Cunningham's dance for hands of the same name, this research was built upon, and extended from, the work of the Synthetic Characters group in a number of ways, motivating the creation of new motor system representations, new graphics-rendering techniques, and new creature-signaling systems.
