Everywhere

Pew Fellow Kate Watson-Wallace completed research and development for Everywhere, an online dance experience with three components: an online dance contest, a gallery exhibition of entries from the contest, and a dance created in collaboration with an online audience. For Everywhere, Watson-Wallace created a dedicated website where online participants became co-creators of the work, viewing previously uploaded videos and providing further movement direction and/or making video responses to be uploaded to the website. All participant feedback was incorporated into the resulting work and archived on the website.
