CONVERGENCE

A COLLABORATIVE ONLINE PLATFORM

Convergence is an online platform that hosts ongoing collaborative projects in interdisciplinary improvisation research. The platform was initiated by a group of artists who, over the course of three decades, helped Susan Sgorbati shape her work in Emergent Improvisation at Bennington College. Since their time at Bennington, many of these artists have continued to be in dialogue as they’ve gone on to develop their own approaches to improvisation.

 

As a co-organizer and member of Convergence, Marie recently curated Triptychs, an online gallery that explores the ways in which natural processes underlie artistic expression. When pictured together the images illuminate the harmonic connections between the self-organizing patterns formed by the dancing ensemble and those that reside in nature. This particular set of triptychs features a series of aerial photographs that depict human landscapes, revealing the patterns we collectively create across the globe. Marie is also part of a small group that is currently engaged in a long-distance virtual project with filmmaker Elliot Caplan. To view the Triptychs Galley click here.
