AffeXity: Performing Affect with Augmented Reality by Susan Kozel

CHOREOGRAPHING AFFECT USING AUGMENTED REALITY ON MOBILE DEVICES

Playing on both ‘affect city’ and ‘a-fixity’, AffeXity is an interdisciplinary, collaborative, social choreography project drawing together dance, geo-spatially tagged visual imagery, and people using mobile-networked devices. Located in Medea’s wider research and production profile, this is a particularly material and performative example of the “Internet of Things.”

Project description
Cities are made up of layers of choreographies, these are patterns of relations between people, technologies, and architectures. AffeXity will insert additional choreographic video layers viewed through Argon, a free open-source augmented reality browser. These layers of dance emphasise ebbs and flows of affect; they are created and sensed by bodies in motion.
