Multiple video projections of A Dance in Sol LeWitt’s “Bars of Color Within Squares (MIT),” explores motion, color and depth perception through aerial perspectives on clustered and spontaneous movement. A Dance in Sol LeWitt’s “Bars of Color Within Squares (MIT)” was a performance project staged on LeWitt’s polychrome terrazzo floor completed for the atrium of MIT's Green Center for Physics in 2007. The December 12, 2010 performance, created by choreographer/MIT researcher Nell Breyer, is being re-staged as part of the MIT150 Festival of Art, Science and Technology on May 8, 2011. The performance examines rule systems manifest in group and individual behaviors.
