AVS 003 | Technologies for Embodied Interaction

Class

We are going to do things a little bit differently this week. We only have Kinects for 7 people at a time so let’s use the class time to actually use them inside TouchDesigner. Go through these videos. I added chapter markers so if you already know how to do some parts, you can possibly skip those sections.



Homework

Read

Read the rest of the book The Audiovisual Breakthrough. You don’t need to finish by next week, but start reading now. So the following chapters:

  • Live Cinema
  • VJing
  • Live Audiovisual Performance

Watch

Learn a little bit about the following people/technologies. The pages have short documentaries, you don’t need to watch all of them although I highly recommend you do:

As an additional note, the Sisters with Transistors documentary just came out recently, check it out if you have the chance. It features Daphne Oram, Delia Derbyshire and many others.
