I'm just a few days away from embarking on an incredible arts research project with a professional dancer from the UK, Darren Pritchard. (I say 'embarking' but it feels more like just 'barking'!) We're going to be locking ourselves away in darkened room for 6 weeks to explore what can be done with dance and the Kinect sensor.
The project travels under the title of Body of Light. This is phase 1. A second phase later in the year will take place in Manchester, UK, and develop what we have created into a performance-ready…er…thing.
A little while back I hooked up the Kinect sensor to my laptop and gave it a test. It sounds simpler than it was. This is what I look like as a depth map…
Exciting times ahead!
