Dance Mocap

So at the end of 2014 I was capturing dancers for an installation project run by a group of Drexel University professors. The piece isn’t done but it should be a great one. Dancers responded to poetry with improv dance in the mocap studio. The data will then be used to generate some abstract imagery and animations that will be played over the dancers as they respond to the same poetry but months later. Its been an interesting project to work on. I just wrapped on cleaning the data (8 dancers at about 45 minutes a piece was tough by myself) so I thought I’d post up some Instagram videos I took during them. I’ll try and take some more when the piece is complete! Until then I’m gearing up to teach the mocap class again this spring term. My second syllabus rewrite, I’m feeling good about it.
