Test Video : Xbox Kinect Motion Capture Performance
Collaboration with Sam Rains
As well as documenting the performances with video I collaborated with another student who was using the kinect for motion capture, in testing whether this could be done as an alternative, all though unsuccessful it opened up other ideas, In this sequence it was capturing my hands and feet and drawing a line between each.
Like working with the structures I found the results held both the human characteristics as well as being geometric, although it was a shape it was also distinctly human in its movement. In this clip I experimented with balancing incorporating one of the aspects of the structures and also attempting to form the geometric shape into a ‘perfect square’.
This testing opened up idea of how the kinect could be used in performative aspects, and while these were recorded it would be possible to incorporate a live feed.
-think about ideas of re enacting other performance works through this medium.??>?!? bas van jader, bruce naumann, bruce mclean.
