Português
Nesta √ļltima performance participativa de realidade mista no contexto do InterACT! com a CILxJam, vamos ter uma √ļltima oportunidade experimentarmos e improvisarmos as interfaces de forma corporealizada a trav√©s do movimento dos entres os corpos f√≠sicos, imagens e avatares numa interac√ß√£o de grupo. Come√ßaremos por receber os participantes guiando-os na corporealiza√ß√£o das interfaces: Livestream, Webcam and Nitendo‚Äôs Wii mote. Introduzindo os participantes com a rela√ß√£o com o seu corpos f√≠sicos e imagens atrav√©s do Livestream e com avatars atrav√©s da Webcam e da Wii mote, de modo a que possam po-las a funcionar na hora.
Seguidamente prosseguiremos para a jam performance participative propriamente dita numa perspectiva de Underscore, improvisando a conex√£o consciente com as muliplas possibilidades perceptivas deixando-as guiar as ac√ß√Ķes.

English
In this last participatory performance we will have the last chance to learn how to interact through your movement with your and other avatars. We will start by welcoming the physical and virtual participants, leading them to embodied interaction with the 3 types o interfaces: Livestream, Webcam and Nitendo’s Wii mote. Introducing them to the relation with their image through the livestream broadcast, and with the avatar through the webcam and wii mote.
Next we will improvise focusing on the grounding of the interaction with ourselves and others in the physical and virtual space, as physical, image or/and avatar bodies, becoming aware of the multiple perceptions shifting and progressing leading our connected actions/choices. Movement and contact/connection (physical and virtual) will start slow for allowing the awareness of sensing the micro events and interactions, multiple channels of local and remote communication.

Sobre Senses Places
Português
Senses Places/Lugares Sentidos √© um ambiente participativo e de performance em realidade mista. Uma colabora√ß√£o em dan√ßa-tecnologia gerando interfaces multimodais para o corpo inteiro canalizada para uma abordagem de dan√ßa som√°tica transcultural. Senses Places stressa a consci√™ncia e integra√ß√£o perceptiva simult√Ęnea local-remota, em que os participantes e ambientes se encontram e envolvem cinest√©ticamente/sinest√©ticamente.

Que realidades corporealizadas e trocas culturais espec√≠ficas emergem neste envolvimento multi-participativo? Ligados entre si e a avatars atrav√©s das interfaces sugeridas: Livestream, webcam, Wii mote e, brevemente o Kinect, tudo depende da atitude dos participantes na experi√™ncia interactiva com os seus corpos f√≠sicos, media√ß√Ķes v√≠deo, anima√ß√Ķes dos avatars, e/ou altera√ß√Ķes ambientais.

About Senses Places
English
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‚Äô attitude throughout the interactive experience through their own and each others’ physical bodies, video mediations, avatar moves, and/or environmental changes.

Senses Places @ InterACT! LEA Art Show

InterACT!
A Linden Endowment for the Arts exhibition showcasing interactive virtual art

Curated by L1Aura Loire/Lori Landay, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Visual Culture & Interactive Media, Berklee College of Music

Virtual art can invite, or even insist, that you interact with it. The artists in this exhibition cleverly and creatively make art out of interactions between data, objects, actions, and people within and beyond the virtual world in a stunning array of installations and experiences that stretch the possibilities of virtual art. Expect the unexpected, and click whenever you can. #interactLEA
