Jennifer Monson in Live Dancing Archive
Combining scientific and movement research, Jennifer Monson leads iLAND (the Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Art, Nature, and Dance), creates site-specific pieces such as The Mahomet Aquifer Project, and investigates media and motion in works including Live Dancing Archive, which incorporates improvisations made at the seashore in response to migrating gray whales and birds.
