Vertigo resident Haseeb Ahmed is currently working alongside Beatrice de Gelder and the DANCE research Group at the Brain and Emotion Laboratory at the University of Maastricht.
The project “Wind Avatar” directly links a person to the wind. The movements and emotions of a subject are translated into expressions of a character composed of wind turbulence patterns. By allowing a person to literally inhabit the wind, this project enables a person to develop new forms of emotions.
Residency: September 1, 2017 – March 1, 2018
To launch issue 11 of The Third Rail, HLP is working with Fundamental Research to host a discussion between Marcin Dudek and Dr. John Rijsman. We’ll also be giving away copies of the new issue, which can be found in Belgium at S.M.A.K., WIELS and Harlan Levey Projects.
