David Meanix brings life to human figure photosculpture by making it the outer surface of an interactive, intelligent, DANCING humanoid robot.

Details

Living up to it's name, Dancebot VIM celebrates the boundless combined energy of visual art, dance and robotics.  Broadcasting our larger passion to move and flow gracefully, we will bring a warm human like appearance to a humanoid shaped dancing robot by applying human figurative photosculptures to it's outer surface.  Dancers will then teach their choreography to VIM utilizing motion recognition technologies.   A vigorously playful and colorfully interactive dancing sculpture, VIM will dance for and with us!  Like a robot rockstar, gracefully reflecting our pivotal relationship with science and technology, VIM will go on a dance concert tour giving assemblies at schools, performing at art centers, while also making time to uplift patients at hospitals and healing facilities.  Loving people of all ages, VIM also has a green thumb and an awing respect for the natural world.  African, Indian and nature inspired, indigenous dances are some of VIM's favorites among modern contemporary and hiphop movement styles.  In fact, there isn't a dance form that VIM won't learn and enjoy dancing with you.  That is why VIM lives up to it's name!  When art and science merge beautifully, we dance the whole world in the right direction.
