Title:


Gemon Dance

Exhibition:


SIGGRAPH 2006: Electronically Mediated Performances

Medium:


Interactive perfomance, controlled by simultaneous real-time capture of human movement and 3D CG object

Category:


Performance

Artist Statement:


This work expresses the motion of a dancer captured in real time and a 3D CG object’s reactions to the motion. The audience, jumping or dancing in front of a screen, becomes a part of the image and its organic and geometric shapes.

The work reflects dance traditions in every country where it is exhibited.

Technical Information:


The system processes a dancer’s actions captured by a camera in real time as mathematical parameters and projects them on the screen as changing three-dimensional CG images. The behavior of the CG images and the arrangement of the dance change interactively.
