meaning in motion

Meaning in Motion presents a four-part interactive suite by UWM Peck School of the Arts professor Nathaniel Stern collectively entitled Body Language (2000-2013). The works (elicitenterstuttering, and scripted) invite viewers to interact with digital projections that track and respond to movement by producing animated text and spoken utterances. Through the juxtaposition of motion performed by the viewer's physical body with computer-generated words and speech, this series explores the complex ways in which the body and language depend upon each other in order to create and communicate meaning.
