contours
1999-2000

 

contours was a fluid performance environment, enveloping performers, computers, images and audience within a shared ecosystem. It used infra-red cameras, computer vision, and motion analysis to convert the movements of live performers into imagery projected both into the space, and onto the performers themselves. Contours aimed to move beyond the hype surrounding virtual technologies in performance and to create a performance which was genuinely interactive.
