The Movement of Composition: Dance and Writing

by Kathryn Perry

This piece, created at the Digital Media and Composition Institute in June 2012, is a multimodal attempt to capture and compare both the physical and conceptual movement involved in dance and writing. The project is my first step towards further exploring the non-linear nature of composition as expressed in the movement of the body and of the mind. Please download a descriptive transcript, if you'd like.
