Senses Places - Mixed Reality Participatory Performance

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Senses Places: dancing with your physical body, image, avatar and bio-signals.

Senses Places is an ongoing collaborative transdisciplinary project creating mixed reality participatory performance environments that engage participants in a physical and mediat(iz)ed kinesthetic/somatic movement relational experience. 
Isabel will discuss Senses Places artistic vision towards mixed reality embodied interfacing encompassing instead of simply substituting the physical body and environment. Focus will be given to the latest process experimenting with simultaneous modes of embodied movement interaction by engaging physically and virtually through different bodily senses, particularly kinesthesis. 

What will be of our virtual presence and activity without our physical embodied engagement with the machines? The transdisciplinary dance/performance art-tech approach develops improvisational situations on somatic based practices, including CI, Butoh, Yoga, Tai Chi that contribute to and expand our awareness and communication channels. We believe that this kind of approach promotes healthy and evolving interactivity with and through intelligent machines.
