    Gemon Dance



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


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.
