At MIT's Hacking Arts 2014 on the weekend of Friday, October 3rd, MFA graduate students Jeremy Stewart and david allen helped form team "Harlequin" around the idea of creating an art installation which would allow viewers to navigate entire databases of corporeal images using only body movement as an interface. The Harlequin team included: software engineers Nicholas Platt, Emily Xie, and Tae Kim; dancer/choreographer Pampi, producer Loreto Paz Ansaldo, dancers Eduardo Restrepo, Terina Alladin, Chienwhe Hong, and Akili Jamal Haynes, all talented movers from In Divine Company; and video artist Rose Maison.
