In Spring 2009, the Wexner Center for the Arts at OSU curated the exhibition,
"Synchronous Objects for One Flat Thing, reproduced." The objects are virtual displays of
the modern-dance piece, "One Flat Thing, reproduced," choreographed by William Forsythe. One of the objects,
"Statistical Counterpoint," was created by Noel Cressie, Hyowon Ban, Ola Ahlqvist, and the Synchronous Objects team.
The Synchronous Objects Project is a virtual project where researchers from various disciplines at
The Ohio State University produced different interpretations of a 15-minute modern dance piece that involved 17 dancers. The
different "objects" were visualized from a multivariate spatio-temporal database constructed by the Synchronous Objects
team, led by Norah Zuniga Shaw and Maria Palazzi. The object, "Statistical Counterpoint," was discussed
on a related blog by Noel Cressie ("Noel Cressie on Dance and Statistics").
