Garden Street: Lower Level

In designing basic pressure sensors, this lecture/performance explores the relationship between movement and sound, focused particularly on using wearable technology as biofeedback devices for elucidating the nuances of partnered movement including the coordinated shifting and sharing weight.


Peter is applying his computer science education and startup experience to movement research. With a varied background combining software and hardware, including robotics competitions and factory automation, he’s now tackling the technical uncertainty of building new systems that aim to capture, express, and impact the ways we move.
