“Algorithm Describing Dance” is a computer mediated re-interpretation of the iconic ghost dance sequence from the late Indian filmmaker Satyajit Ray’s cinematic masterpiece -— Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne. In the movie, the sequence is meant to depict a surreal dream that the protagonists have, where they encounter a magical and terrifying world of ghosts. A custom written algorithm sorts and represents every frame of the footage as a cumulative drawing of gestures.
