Mashup Realities: Exploring Experience In Networked Interactive Environments For Dance
This paper explores user experience specifically in the context of telematic dance and networked spaces.
Experiment.spaces no.2 [Spheres] explore
This project is currently in the prototype stage, but was successfully tested during the MetaSeminar Digital Technologies Lab workshop. Experiment.spaces no.2 [Spheres] is an application which allows dancers to interact and guide virtual forms, in the shape of spheres, inside an online virtual space. Another dancer in a different location can also access this same […]
In response to the performance at Brunel University an audience member, Emma Filtness, wrote a poem: Inside-out Spectres hang In translucent wombs, Drifting in amniotic sacks Of white noise That fizzes and shifts. Cobwebs cling to pale Limbs forming papery shrouds, The absinthe light moves In and out With each rattled aspiration, A simultaneous cry […]

Experiment.spaces#1 explore studio work
Exploring choreography concepts and technologies with Rachel Heller-Wagner & Louis Matthews.
Experiment.spaces#1 exploring movement
We are creating a database of movement, which will be a component of the first Mashup Realities installation. Thanks to Rachel Heller-Wagner for her help.
In the studio with contemporary dancer, Seeta Indrani, and martial artist, Gene Thai-Low
This initial stage was to trial the proposed technology. I wanted to test the responsiveness and range of the hardware and software with a contemporary dancer and martial artist by creating an environment similar to the proposed concept, Mashup Realities. The hardware included Microsoft’s Kinect sensor, a laptop computer and a projector. The software, Synapse […]
