SYMPOIETIC BODIES

 

"SYMPOIETIC BODIES" IS AN ARTISTIC-PHILOSOPHICAL PROJECT PRESENTED THROUGH THE MEDIUM FILM, WHICH EXPLORES THE DISRUPTION OF THE BOUNDARIES BETWEEN THE HUMAN BODY AND ITS SOCIAL AND PHYSICAL SURROUNDINGS.

ARTISTIC PROCESS

The Making-of: Motion Capture Performance

Making-of: Hybrid
Video abspielen

Through the use of the Motion Capture Technology and its further processing in animation / simulation softwares, the human body gets completely transformed in its appearance. The movements of the performer have been recorded and then translated into different abstract geometries, tracking its movement in time and space, while the body is no longer recognizable. This transformation affects not only the physical aspect of the body, but also its temporal and spacial  mutation. Time and space are assumed as the main perception marks, both hybrid figures of a deconstructed post-anthropocentric world.

Through the use of the Kinect Sensor it was possible to record real time sequences of people’s movements as point cloud data. Here, the props as well as the performers have been covered with black plastic bags to distort the Kinect sensor and to create a digital camouflage effect where boundaries between adjacent entities are no longer recognizable. The recorded data from the two different technologies have been then merged together and distorted further on in animation / simulation softwares.
