Abstract: Seven Enigmas was a multi-media collaborative performance work celebrating the capacity of the human spirit to imaginatively explore the universe outside and within. It was co-created by dancer and choreographer Peter Sparling and the author, a visual artist. Inspired by the spatial movement and gestural power of seven dance miniatures choreographed by Sparling, I mapped out a multimedia sculptural installation for our stage production: objects and surfaces in motion with human bodies, along with film and video projections. The piece was realized through the joint efforts of a team of artists, scientists, dancers, and musicians, and performed at the Power Center for the Performing Arts in Ann Arbor in July and again in September 1997 by the Peter Sparling Dance Company.
