Wired throughout the body, trapped in a dancing mind.
A stunning new experimental film, as·phyx·i·a, created by Maria Takeuchi and Frederico Phillips using the motion capture technology in Microsoft’s Kinect sensor, features a digital representation of professional dancer, Shiho Tanaka, moving through space, accompanied by an ambient soundtrack.
According to the description on the film’s web site, “The project is an effort to explore new ways to use and/or combine technologies and different fields in an experiment without many of the common commercial limitations. The performance is centered in an eloquent choreography that stresses the desire to be expressive without bounds.”
