If/Then Open Source
If/Then Open Source is the digital extension of a live dance created by Richard Siegal. The choreography is a series of games based on the syntactical system If/Then. During performances, the dancers choose their movements in turn from a set of pre-defined rules.
If/Then Open Source extends these gameplay ideas by offering an online system for collaborative creation. Participants contribute to the evolution of the piece by modifying existing rules or adding their own events using text, photo, drawings, sound and video.
