Dance Dance (Virtual) Evolution

This week I was blown away by Asphyxia, a motion capture and dance project by Maria Takeuchi and Frederico Phillips'. Using the XBox Kinect, they create a moving, virtual, sculpture of dancer, Shisho Tinaka's movements. She becomes a moving web of light in the dark screen. The collaborative team put equal effort into art and technology aspects. The project required iterative studies on styles and a number of 3D tools after motion data was captured using "inexpensive tools." Amazing and inspirational!
