One of the most interesting aspects of The Moving Cell was the fact that it started as a way for dancers to illustrate the all ready understood chaos of a cell. Thus, it seemed that when the project was originally conceived it was going to be used as a pedagogical tool to help others (especially nonscientists) understand activities within the cell. Very quickly, however, Dave and Carl's collaboration moved from simply communicating ideas to testing theories. As Carl described it, The Moving Cell has become a way to create predictions made under a microscope at the human level. It was amazing to see how dance and cellular biology could come together and create valuable research.
On another note, it was also refreshing to partake in an exercise that was based on making an instantaneous decision. As humans, I feel we often spend a great deal of our time just thinking about the decision we haven't even made yet and trying to predict what the outcome might be. It was a nice change of pace to simply think about the body in relation to speed and split second choices.
