Jodi Lomask - Left to Her Own Devices

Jodi Lomask has been creating sculpture and technology enhanced live performance for almost 20 years via her dance/cirque company Capacitor. Come see and hear her outline a few collaborative projects she found especially satisfying over the years.

Jodi Lomask founded Capacitor in 1998, designing performances and structures in collaboration with scientists and robust creative teams. Defined by a sculptural approach to the body, costuming, projections, and apparatus, her inventive choreographic solutions emerge from her curiosity about how the world works.

the purpose of dorkbot is to

  • give artists/programmers/engineers an opportunity for informal peer review
  • establish a forum for the presentation of new art works/technology/software/hardware
  • help establish relationships and foster collaboration between people with various backgrounds and interests
  • give us all a chance to see the cool things that our neighbors are working on
