dance data – hetty blades

I am just about to finish a three month residency at the Digital Catapult Centre, during which I have been looking at the circulation of dance ‘data’, in relation to questions of ownership, copyright and value. I worked with a small group of artists and companies to consider the practices, potentials and barriers of sharing and reusing dance online, and explored how the technologies and strategies for protecting creative content being developed at the Digital Catapult might support the dance community. The project has raised a wealth of practical and philosophical questions, which I am currently working my way through for two papers; one about the ownership of movement data, and another about copyright, community and the digital economy. Here is a link to the project blog:
