COLLABORATOR: Rashaad Newsome (Multidisciplinary Artist)
CATEGORY: Motion Tracking, Intermedia Performance, 3D Animation, Creative Coding, Generative Art
ROLE: Creative Technologist – Programming with Kinect to transfer the motion cptured gestural data into 3D sculptures.
This project is based on artist Rashaad Newsome’s intermedia performance, “FIVE”. I was asked by the artist to develop an approach to record the gestural data that was captured during the performance and then transfer it to 3d models. Each model represents the movement trace of a certain part of the dancer’s body(e.g., hand and foot).
