Commissioned by the M.I.T. Media Lab for the “ID/Entity” show, which was organized by Judith Donath and curated by Christina Yang of the Kitchen.

Merce Cunningham performed his dance for the hands in 2000 in the motion capture studios of Modern Uprising, which kindly donated its services for the project. Cunningham also suggested using his diary excerpts for the sound score, which he read and we recorded in 2002.

The Cunningham Dance Foundation has provided continuous support for this project. We especially thank Trevor Carlson (the director) and David Vaughan (the archivist).

The John Cage prepared piano samples were provided by the courtesy The John Cage Trust, whose director Laura Kuhn has given us her usual astute advice and enthusiasm. We have Laura to thank for originally introducing us to Cunningham in 1998.
