Form Constant is a collaboration between dancer/choreographer Hope Goldman and her partner, visual artist/programmer Andrew Moffat. It was performed live in March 2010 in the Studio Dance 1 Concert at the Krannert Center the Performing Arts as Goldman's Master's thesis show.
To perform the real-time tracking and effects, the piece uses infrared lighting and a custom-modded, $40 webcam along with custom software running on the GPU.
The choreography was influenced by the ideas of fluid dynamics and the energetic quality of the imagery.
