In Experiment 1, dancers are asked to respond to a text that is being narrated to them, describing ordinary objects, including; chairs, tables, walls. The aim is to observe how dancers describe ordinary objects kinaesthetically, in order to find common behavioural patterns for each item. For the purposes of all notational exercises, a basic symbolic figure of the human body is created.
In an empty room, 3 cameras are positioned in different viewing planes, capturing the dancers’ movement from a plan and elevational view, while the third camera is directly translating the figure of the dancers into a virtual/point cloud model. The actions are all being archived for further design analysis.
Many thanks to Chryssa Varna and Lise Manavit for their precious help.
