movement, meaning, gesture

A collaboration between Dylan Bernard, Maria Gillespie, and Nathaniel Stern, movement, meaning, gesture is a video triptych displaying a slow motion figure alongside generated graphics and text. These are translated by an algorithm that analyzes a 3d motion-capture of the dancer’s original gestures in space.

Language, graphics, and movement are displayed as a large projection and two, smaller LCD screens, which invite viewers to move into the installation’s vicinity, casting shadows, reading texts, witnessing action. Here each movement, meaning, and gesture are part of, and driving the others, amplifying the reciprocity between active viewership and production.
