Zandrine Chiri - Francis Bras/Interface Z - Florence Corin/Mutin
The workshop will focus on a technical, artistic approach of the implications of using sensors during a performance. Nowadays, the use of sensors enables a more sensitive interaction between performer and technology; it also allows us to explore the depth of the reaction. The sensors allow us to use various data from our environment in real time and feed them into performance production.
Reflection will focus upon the technical means we have at our disposal today: the array of existing sensors. We will consider sensors in performing arts and classify them in three families: sensors placed on the performer, partly placed and those placed in the environment.
The workshop will focus on an interactive story boarding exercise using the Isadora software and will give an insight into the software. The notation of interactive patches will enable us to explore the interactive input of sensors in performing arts.
The Company Interface-Z is specialised in the conception of interface, sensors and actuators for artists. The Company was founded by Zandrine Chiri and Francis Bras and is established in Paris.
