Philippa Kaye choreographed Ritual for a Non-repeating Universe for six dancers. It uses a camera to analyze movement on stage and a computer to create visual animation from the live dataset. Taking images from a live camera feed, the computer records the coordinates of the pixels from each frame sent, to determine where movement occurred. Provided the camera is left alone on its tripod, the number of points corresponding to the dancers is always significantly less than total points of motion. About 12 times per second, an essential number for perceiving animation, a randomly chosen subset of the points are depicted on the screen.
