Human/Machine Dance Project with Carly Lave - Kyle Adler

A few images from my ongoing award-winning "Human/Machine Dance Project". How does the human body move when interacting with advanced technologies? This is the question that my collaborator Carly embarks on a year-long Fulbright grant to research. I approached her to collaborate on a photography series informed by her research goals and artistry as a dancer. We explored several visual themes, each related to the timely question of how we humans will be transformed by increasing immersion into advanced technologies, including virtual reality, robotics, and interconnectivity. The project enjoyed early recognition as a winner of Digital Photo Pro Magazine's biannual Emerging Pro Competition: it was awarded First Place in the "Fashion & Beauty" category and garnered Third Prize in the overall contest. Carly and I are continuing to collaborate, working in San Francisco and Berlin, during and after Carly's Fulbright residency.
