How do we develop a meaning of algorithms? How do we develop a meaning of movement?
What does it mean when they collide?
We want to explore, discuss and share different approaches to weave digital
visualizations into dance in an unpretentious way. In this 3 days workshop we will show several
ways of interaction between the moving object and the digital media.
We want to create a laboratory atmosphere in which performers as well as coders can
find a common ground to work together and benefit from each others insight and
This workshop is about the intersection of code and choreography. It will cover principles
about how visualization, motion analysis and choreography can come together in a
We will explore different computer vision motion tracking technics using 2D and 3D
cameras, talk about the aspects to consider in the building of an interactive environment,
and also show other less common examples of motion and position capture processes.
In this point we will explain and work on different motion visualization technics and its
representation on the space, and also we would like to show some uses of motion data
beyond the most common ways (movement and sound, reactive light installations, motion
visualization using physical objects...).
The core part of the workshop, in which we will combine motion analysis, its visualization
on the space and some choreographic concepts, and also we would like to discuss about
how digital media and performative arts are related in the post digital era, in order to
explore with the participants new ways to collide both disciplines.
Depending on the participant´s level (or interest) we will go deeply into the several points.
An interest into performance, movement, choreographic decisions and playful investigations.
Basic programming skills in VVVV, processing, or openframeworks, but we prefer VVVV
Computer with the software of your choice installed.
Web cameras, kinect, are welcome and we will work mainly with these devices (drivers
installed is a plus).
Leap motion, Oculus rift, arduino, motors, DMX, lights, game pads, and MIDI controllers,
are welcome but we assume that you know how to use it.

I would love, but can not attend.
do you plan make similar @ node15?
@lasal, I know you'll be busy with the popular 'Paper cutting and folding' workshop, but please, please do this one too at Node15... OK?
oh this would be fine, because Barcelona is far away :)
