Bin-packing algorithms are normally used by the transportation and 3D printing industries to calculate the optimal arrangement of irregular objects in a container, configuring these objects to take up as little space as possible.

In this work, artist Coralie Vogelaar uses this algorithm on a dataset of classical sculptures. A selection of the results are translated in a choreography for four dancers—designed in collaboration with choreographer Marjolein Vogels—and performed live. Sound is created with the help of two Kinect depth scanners that are triggered by the movements of the dancers.

Performers: Keita Fournier-Pelletier, Kaelin Isserlin, Nyda Kwasowsky, Sully Malaeb Proulx 
Choreographer: Marjolein Vogels

Please note capacity is limited.
