Dance perception and visualization
Time: 16h Central European Time
How do we experience movement? Is looking at movement the same as doing movement? How does what we see affect what we do? What is the role of images in the production, observation and understanding of dance?
Three different speakers will address these questions from the perspective of their own research projects:
Sarah Fdili Aloui researcher of Gesture recognition and graphical physical models at IRCAM Paris, UK based cognitive neuroscientists Corinne Jola and visual artistBram Vreeswijk.
Since October 2010, Sarah Fdili Aloui researches both at the LIMSI-CNRS and at IRCAM-Centre Pompidou, Paris (FR). Her PhD deals with the conception and development of advanced models for human-computer interaction, applied to an artistic computational framework and particularly to gesture recognition fields. Sarah worked on the development of the Interactive Installation Double Skin/Double Mind. During this encounter she will present the current status of her PhD-research and results of experiments about what effect graphical feedback based on physical models can have within contemporary dance.
Corinne Jola, is a research fellow at Surrey University, UK. Her research interests are representation, generation, and perception of the human body and complex human movement patterns, in particular in relation to the performing arts. Jola now develops a new study that investigates how the processes and structure of the human brain changes in response to intense physical experience. Is it possible to see the experiences of embodiment in the behaviour of the brain? The work of Emio Greco | PC with its particular movement language and curiosity for the body and the mind provides a unique opportunity and an optimal basis for this study. During her presentation Jola will present her latest results and the status of research.
Bram Vreeswijk, studied photography, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in the Hague and then following Cultural Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam. Vreeswijk is an video artist but his work has developed more and more in the direction of dance and performance art. His artistic work almost always goes together with philosophical research. Within ICK he has developed the project ‘Dance-Experience-Watch’ , exploring methods for the ‘articulation’ of the visual and physical experience of dance – making it ‘explicit’ (conscious, workable) by using images or language. During his presentation Vreeswijk will present this project.
