AffeXity: Passages and Tunnels

Nikolaj Kunsthal Oct 31, 2013 København
Exposing somatic and affective layers of our urban spaces through dance improvisation and screendance.AffeXity: Passages & Tunnels is a project exploring affect in urban spaces. Dance improvisation and screen dance techniques for video capture and editing are the main artistic modalities. The element of Augmented Reality (AR) lets the choreographies be suspended as hidden layers of media living in physical space and on personal mobile phones. An extra dimension of archived material is added, letting AR be part time-machine part performance of memory. This artwork can be experienced individually, or as part of coordinated groups, or you can see the AR media combined with a live performance.

DansAR 01 & 02 an AR Performance Project, in collaboration with Jeannette Ginslov, Skånes Dansteater Living Archives at MEDEA, Prof Susan Kozel, Prof Daniel Spikol and Masters Students from the Department of Computer Science at MEDEA Malmö University, Malmö, Sweden. 18 Feb-01 March 2013.


DansAR 01 18-22 February 2013 was an AR Performance and Screendance Project in collaboration with four disabled dancers and a choreographer, Melody Putu from Skånes Dansteater. Together with the collaborators from MEDEA it explored movements and choreographies set by the disabled dancers and Putu. Eight videos were shot and edited by the writer, converted to image based videos on Aurasma and later tagged onto the real environment at Skånes Teater auditorium. It culminated in an informal presentation, 22 February, that integrated live performances by the disabled dancers and AR videos.


The audiences using the augmented reality application called Aurasma triggered the tagged videos by moving from one designated spot to the next and then viewed the short live performance besides the tagged spot.

DansAR 02 25 March-01 March 2013, was an AR Performance and Choreographic Project in collaboration with Skånes Dansteater and twenty five dancers from Lund’s Dance & Music Gymnasium, Sweden. The dancers divided up into four teams and learnt choreographies from Putu which they then adapted to their location and concept of their videos. They then shot and edited the short screendance works in locations in and around Skånes Dansteater: the children’s park, the skate park, the entrance to the University and inside the Skånes Dansteater building. They made triggers for the videos and a journey was created for the audiences for the final event, 01 March 2012, that attracted over 50 viewers. The audience was divided into two groups each group experienced a different AR journey, going from outside to inside the building. It culminated in a large dance ensemble where all the students performed the main dance sequence live for the the assembled audience.


The most affective AR outcomes were the ones shot and created by the “Swedish Meatballs” group who created auras at the Skate Park. The five dancers wore their triggers, images of daisies, on their backs, shoulders and held them, so that they moved with them. The one dancer stood in the skate park bowl and lured the audience members into the bowl. Here the dancer improvised, moving his trigger quite significantly. The audience member had to then move in tandem with him, so as to keep the AR video looping on the mobile device. A choreographic moment was born, a mobile encounter took place.


The final event was part of the Living Archives project at MEDEA.

Phase 01 Video

AffeXity, a play on both ‘affect city’ and ‘a-fixity’, is an interdisciplinary collaborative social choreography project drawing together dance, visual imagery, and mobile-networked devices. It uses a free open standards augmented reality web browser called Argon running on the iPhone and iPad for the viewing of choreographies embedded in the city of Malmö, Sweden. Short screendance narratives shot in the city area are then edited, focusing on affect and corporeality, and uploaded on Argon. These are geospatially tagged onto certain locations in Malmö, which the will viewers access using Argon on mobile devices, the iPhone and/or iPad.

See AffeXity Proposal Video:

For the final launch of the AffeXity project, videos will be shot in and around Malmö for the performance and uploaded onto the Argon Browser for the viewer to download onto their mobile devices – ipads and iphones. The final AffeXity project will be launched Nov 2012. Several phases have to be undertaken in order to develop the technology and videos.

Jeannette Ginslov (Danish/b.South Africa)
Interdisciplinary & Multiplatform Artist [dance|video|stage|screen|internet]

MSc Media Arts & Imaging – Screendance, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee, Scotland (A1 Distinction) and an MA Choreography, Rhodes University South Africa.

My research and practice is centered around Affect, haptic and digital materiality on several platforms: screen, online and new media.

The Screendance works amplify the visceral, emotional and kinesthetic, the concrete and the digital, using collaborative choreographic processes, a Dogme filmic approach and vertical montage in the edit and post production.

Online I am associate producer for, creator and producer of MoveStream and co-ordinator for I am also the coordinator for ScreenMoves at Dansehallerne, Copenhagen Denmark.

I support my practice by teaching Screendance workshops privately and at Dance & New Media University Departments. I am a Level Two Alba Emoting Trainer, which is a somatic system training the performer to elicit authentic basic emotions through patterns of breath, tension and facial expression.

Presently I am exploring Augmented Reality, Affect and locative choreographies using Argon on mobile devices, iPads and iPhones, with Prof Susan Kozel at MEDEA Malmö University.


My Screendance workshops:
These explore the genre of Screendance – the media and its outcomes.
• Explore dance and camera improvisations, choreographic scores for the dancer and camera, use of formal and experimental ways of shooting, with storyboards and shot lists.
• Investigate the amplification of the kinaesthetic and the emotional, how authentic and concrete experience is captured by the medium.
• Amplify the kinaesthetic and the emotional by the “edit in camera” process and in the timeline.
• Examine how the digital body and affective images become haptic, how these stimulate the audience’s imagination and engage them empathetically.
• The workshops highlight the influence of postmodern dance practice as well as the cinematic genre of Dogme and a non linear filmic practice, with vertical montage.
• The workshop will introduce ideas of editing and discuss the notion of repetition in the edit as a choreographic tool, choreographic affordances and the use of diegetic sound.
• Working in teams the participants will produce a 2- 3 minute Screendance work “edit in camera” dance video or in iMovie or Final Cut Pro.

Great that you like it!
That was just a spontaneous trial with a photo-camera and I used it in an experimental short movie.
I do have some more films but in October I will begin to study film at the art-academy, then the number of my films will sourly increase.

Wow! You are in such an exciting place and doing terrific things. I showed one of my friends some of that album and she LOVED it!! We'll definitely look for the new work as it comes out - I love that artists from all over can meet here and chat like this. :)
Me? Planning a sitework on the summer equinox - this one deals more with questions of time. Also rehearsing dancers for my BFA Concert work, which is this November ... and gearing up to run some field work this summer practicing the developmental movement patterns with kids that have ADHD. I'm set to get my first dance degree this fall, so things are busy busy right now ...
good thing I love the work, huh? :) sending the best!
