Shelly Eshkar and Paul Kaiser


Paul Kaiser and Shelley Eshkar are digital artists whose collaborations combine motion-capture with dance, sometimes in the form of installations and other times as projections for the stage. With Merce Cunningham and others, they have created Hand-drawn Spaces (1998), BIPED (1999), Loops (2001), and Lifelike (2002-3); with Bill T. Jones, Ghostcatching (1999). Other works that use motion-capture to evoke urban worlds include Pedestrian (2002) and Rivalry (2003). Eshkar and Kaiser's work has appeared in diverse venues, including Lincoln Center, MASS MoCA, ZKM, SIGGRAPH and the Kiasma Museum. Their work has received prominent coverage in such places as The New York Times, Newsweek, Time, Wired and ABC-News. For more information, see
