In this article, we present a novel way of choreographing movement with fractal feedback using motion caption and haptic sensors. The practitioners receive a visual, sonic, and kinaesthetic signal about their current dynamic state, which they can interpret to change their movement pattern or to maintain it further.
Swarm formations are very common to find in nature. They are based on a few simple rules that lead to complex behaviors. Taking as inspiration the studies that have been done on swarms in biology and for military applications we demonstrate how these principles could be used to choreograph collective actions.
The “transfer learning” approach used in a therapy setting can be very useful when applied to learning the new skills and particularly the part where they have to be implemented into the real-life context. We demonstrate how we use this approach in the EightOS setting to facilitate knowledge transfer between different contexts and disciplines.
An interplay of tension and release as an aesthetic expression of life principles. How we can play with this dynamics and reflect the important aspects of physical movement both on the individual and the collective levels.
In the frame of the State of the Arts Exhibition we presented EightOS bodymind operating system as a methodology and a practice for activating the fluid modality in a public space.
In this analysis, we look into the features of Coronavirus dynamics and explore the mechanisms of their effect on society.
