What does the body become, when its definitive environment can be altered at any times? Are we subject to the perception 'engineered' by external factors? Can and should we implement a multi-sensorial platform into physical clothing to provide a bridge between the digital and physical? Future Bodies investigates integrated body tracking in the physical, and human presence in the digital.
Motion capture technologies can translate the essence of human presence into the digital realm. Connecting bodies throughout realms, existence translates into a set of coordinates.
How will the democratization of motion capture influence perceiving 'presence' and our body image?
The research explores a number of mocap options, and follows the developing technologies, creating immersive experiences where the users play with awareness, presence and perception.
