Hosted by AlgoMech Festival in 2019, the Symposium on Dancing and Braiding was a far-reaching, interdisciplinary symposium, bringing together perspectives from digital media, choreography and dance technology, traditional Andean and Ancient Greek textiles, e-textiles, philology, live coding and architecture.
Through talks, discussion and performance, contributors to the symposium considered their work in the context of interlacing within and between textiles, e-textiles, pattern, structure and movement, including dance. Interfaces between materials, craft technologies, digital engineering, responsive systems, embodied communications, threads, inter-weaving, intertwining, braiding and building provide a rich vein of dialogue, experimentation and recent practice-led outcomes.
