Exploring light with movement
Created in collaboration with Nunnapat ‘Spencer’ Ratanavanh and Bruce Mk Arthur.
Light as Medium was an exploration in creating motion-reactive and user-controlled light within the context of stage performance and movement exploration. Ideated and driven by Spencer’s experience as a modern dance artist, we integrated body-mounted sensors, a Kinect camera, and projector into a custom performance tool and space.
The snapshots below are from a proof-of-concept showcase. In all recordings, the lights projected are fully controlled by Spencer (the dancer) through his hand placement and electromuscular signals.
Spencer continued this exploration in his Wetware project.
