Senses Places/Lugares Sentidos é um ambiente participativo e de performance em realidade mista. Uma colaboração em dança-tecnologia gerando interfaces multimodais para o corpo inteiro canalizada para uma abordagem de dança somática transcultural. Senses Places stressa a consciência e integração perceptiva simultânea local-remota, em que os participantes e ambientes se encontram e envolvem cinestéticamente/sinestéticamente.

Que realidades corporealizadas e trocas culturais específicas emergem neste envolvimento multi-participativo? Ligados entre si e a avatars através das interfaces sugeridas: Livestream, webcam, Wii mote e, brevemente o Kinect, tudo depende da atitude dos participantes na experiência interactiva com os seus corpos físicos, mediações vídeo, animações dos avatars, e/ou alterações ambientais.

Senses Places is a playful mixed reality performance environment for audience participation. An ongoing dance-technology collaboration generating whole body multimodal interfacings keen to a somatic cross-cultural approach; Senses Places stresses the awareness and integration of simultaneous perceptive, local-remote connections, where participants and environments meet and engage kinesthetic/synesthetically.

What emerging embodied realities and cultural specific exchanges will surface by the multi-participant varied involvement? Linked to avatars through the suggested interfaces: Livestream, webcam, Wiimote©, and soon Kinect©, it all depends on the participants’ attitude throughout the interactive experience through their own and each others’ physical bodies, video mediations, avatar moves, and/or environmental changes.

  1. This is what I have been searching in quite a few web pages and I ultimately identified it right here. Wonderful post. I am so impressed. Could under no circumstances imagine of these a point is attainable with it…I imagine you have a excellent information in particular while dealings with these kinds of topics.


  2. Thanks so much Andrew 😀 I’m flattered for your feedback and really happy that this work moved you so much. We have a great deal of information but we gain much more through the experimentations we have been investing. These reveal new possibilities to the inclusion of mediated communication through embodied kinesthesia and empathetic experiences.
    Please apologize for the late response, but you certainly were worth one 😉
