Tactiligne 3D

production residency from September 10 to 17 2011


In the performance Tactiligne 3D, interactivity takes the form of a virtual 3D drawing and an experiment in depicting the movements of the body. The relationship between human being and machine creates virtual images that are revealed only through the viewer’s interactive activity. Our understanding of the graphic representation as aesthetic appreciation derives from its gameplay.[1] The player’s movements create a chain of marked moments in real space. Actions are detected by infrared cameras and leave traces using programming codes which connect the gestur to drawing.
