To help support the APS Type 1 community, share cutting-edge research and raise awareness, the…

Created by dancer Emily Beattie and media artist Eric Gunther, ROLLING POINT is a dynamic video that invites visitors to move and interact with the motions of a dancer projected onto the walls of the Zuccaire Gallery in Staller Center.
