Abstract / Summary

How do we interpret a multi-participant choreographed performance in the public domain through digital technologies? In collaboration with data visualisation expert David Hunter from University of Colorado at Boulder, and visual artist Zach Duer from
Virginia Tech, dAnCing LiNes explores how dance can generate a
choreographic view of drawing through mediated representation.
In this respect the artwork produced for dAnCing LiNes is not
intended as a means of documentation of the live events but as a
tool for new artistic production. The intention is to rethink performative drawing beyond the gestural trace of the body in movement
through the use of data visualisations. Capturing chorographic
scores and task-based instructions through digital technologies,
the data visualisations explore how the agency of dance moves
from the performative to the visual via technological means by
using combinations of established computer vision techniques from
OpenCV [1] like Optical Flow, Blob Detection. The visualisations
not only reveal the rules of the underlying choreography in each
location but also computationally play with and exemplify those
rules on a per location basis (five in total).
