Today sees the launch of the British Library's major new exhibition on how digital tools are already transforming how we do research, including KMi's e-Dance Project. Growing Knowledge: The Evolution of Research, runs from 12 October 2010 - 16 July 2011. We're delighted to say that the e-Dance Project (in collaboration with Univ. Bedfordshire, Leeds & Manchester) was selected as one of the examples, showcasing how close collaboration between technology researchers (originally developing Access Grid video-conferencing/collaboration tools, and Compendium hypermedia mapping, in an e-Science context) enables arts and humanities researchers, in this case Choreographic researchers/practitioners, to break new ground playing with time and space in their discipline. The e-Dance exhibit presents video material introducing the project, with examples of the technologies in action. Follow the links below to learn more about the project, Compendium e-Dance Edition, and how it fits into the new media research and practice requirements of choreographers working with digital media. e-Dance was funded by the joint AHRC+EPSRC+JISC e-Science Initiative.
