AS PHYX I A

Asphyxia is an experimental film project by artist/musician Maria Takeuchi and designer/director Frederico Phillips that explores human movement through motion capture technology. The team used two Kinect sensors to capture the movements of dancer Shiho Tanaka and then processed the data in various ways before rendering the results.

The noisy, lo-fi data from the Kinects, combined with expressive choreography and some nice post-prod glitching gives this short film an organic, post-digital feel.

About john

creative factotum based in northern Finland. exactly one half of a company that fuses technology with the moving body to make dance work. i use cameras and computers and projectors and lights and sound to make magic spaces for people to dance in. and i don't much care for capital letters.
