Senses Places é um ambiente participativo em realidade mista desenvolvido desde 2011 por uma colaboração internacional transdisciplinar em dança somática e tecnológica. Quer testemunhar a emergência de interactividades corporealizadas num clima acessível e inclusivo. Trata-se de uma experimentação artística em rede através da partilha física, biométrica, telemática e virtual. A experiência interativa propõe um ambiente criativo crítico sensível através de interfaces que conectam participantes de todo o mundo em corporealidades partilhadas.

A ênfase das conexões com nossas diversas simulações e ambientes é somática, voltada para uma empatia cinestésica media(tiza)da, alicerce da criação/investigação de uma experiência humana mais profunda e diversificada. Lugares Sentidos acontece entre lugares físicos remotos públicos/privados e o lugar virtual partilhado na Odyssey Contemporary Art and Performance Simulator (Second Life).

Senses Places is an ongoing collaborative transdisciplinary project creating mixed reality participatory performance environments that engage participants in a physical and mediat(iz)ed kinesthetic/somatic movement relational experience.

Isabel will discuss Senses Places artistic vision towards mixed reality embodied interfacing encompassing instead of simply substituting the physical body and environment. The focus will be given to the latest process experimenting with simultaneous modes of embodied movement interaction by engaging physically and virtually through different bodily senses, particularly kinesthesis.

What will be of our virtual presence and activity without our physical embodied engagement with the machines? The transdisciplinary dance/performance art-tech approach develops improvisational situations on somatic based practices, including CI, Butoh, Yoga, Tai Chi that contribute to and expand our awareness and communication channels. We believe that this kind of approach promotes healthy and evolving interactivity with and through intelligent machines.

About the OpenSimulator Community Conference 2016: The OpenSimulator Community Conference is an annual conference that focuses on the community around the OpenSimulator software.

Let’s allow our bodies to interact intuitively, attaining for close/intimate/inner/somatic/energetic/kinesthetic connections, bringing into play our senses and subjective trans-cultural backgrounds. Our common concept is the experimentation and reflection upon the very shared interfacing experience and what kind of dance we develop through this mixed reality approach. The experiment is anchored in the sense of embodying and how we adapt to different mediations of self, others and environments 😀

DIVIRTAM-SE!!!

Senses Places @ Metatopia 1.0 / International Metabody Forum Madrid 2015

INTRA-ACTION – XXI Century Quixotes: politics of the multisensorial body in the era of expressive homogenisation.
1-25 July
METATOPIA 1.0 – Performances, concerts, installations
July 22-25
Physical location: Medialab-Prado, Plaza de las Letras. C/ Alameda, 15, Madrid, Spain
Virtual location/SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Odyssey/31/147/681

Senses Places is an ongoing collaborative project creating mixed reality participatory performance environments that engage participants in a physical and mediat(iz)ed kinesthetic/somatic movement relational experience.  We foster possibilities for multiple embodied and environmental interactive amplifications and permeations by designing/choreographing physical-virtual interfaces with/through avatars, video images, bio-signals and aspects of environments, based on live videostreams, webcam, and biometric devices, towards new inclusive modes of embodied sharing, exchanging and creative community.
Taking place in a shared virtual place* at Second Life’s MUVE, and at remote physical places, private or public, depending on the international collaborators in Japan, Newfound Land, Portugal, The Netherlands, Brazil, and New Zealand, the project builds site specific hybrids, evolving through each mixed reality instantiation, in a collaborative process of physicalizing the virtual and virtualizing the physical, where participants generate unknown posthuman corporealities.
Senses Places was an invited project at Metatopia 1.0 exhibition, integrating the ensemble of in progress Metabody projects at MediaLab Prado. In this site specific environment, Senses Places was installed inside a deformed tent constituting its smallest and most intimate physical instantiation.

We were enthusiastic from the challenging experience, particularly for the slow net connection at the Chichester site. Still we were able to gather in the GU Second Life site 3 other sites from Brasil, Berlin, and … will confirm this later.

Anyway, the good news is that next year 2013 we are continuing the Global Underscore in SL and it will happen in Lisbon, where Nancy Stark Smith and Mike Vargas at the occasion will  give a workshop on the Underscore Practice 😀

More info and Links soon.
