Rosie Stebbing will use this residency to begin a research process in collaboration with multidisciplinary visual artist Aisling Phelan. Both Rosie and Aisling are interested in the theme of online identity and in exploring the complex relationships between our physical and virtual selves through their work. Aisling works across 3D animation, photography, video, virtual reality performance and live interactive technologies.

The artists will spend the week researching where the dancing body can find its intersection with these technologies.
