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.

Cohen Van Balen: 75 Watt

Revital Cohen and Tuur Van Balen have created a project in collaboration with choreographer Alexander Whitley. 75 Watt is the documentation of a production line that is building a useless product. the product has been designed specifically so that its process of manufacture contains a variety of choreographic expressions. this is a great example of putting choreography into a place where it shouldn’t be.

RAM – Reactor for Awareness in Movement

RAM is a great system for connecting dancers and computers – opens up many possibilities. and its available for download.

i’m currently developing an idea for a digital feedback system with one organic element – the dancer, and this – although completely different – is really inspirational.
