Fractal Motion Control @ Theatre de Liege | 11/2021

During our work in the frame of the EightOS project, we developed motion tracking sensors that can be used to provide live feedback to dancers and introduce more variability into their movement. In November 2021, we presented this work at the IMPACT platform at Theatre de Liege in Belgium. They provided us with a grant to develop this project further. Variability is an important aspect of EightOS practice because it makes movement and interaction more adaptive and responsive to external impulses. We practice a special type of variability, which is fractal — or self-similar — at its core: the type of changes that can be found on a small-scale and replicated on big scale and vice versa. This makes movement look very organic: small deviations in speed / intensity / amplitude are followed by occasional big shifts in dynamics. In order to make this vision reality, we developed motion-tracking sensors that operate on...

EightOS x Ama @ Gropius Bau | 11/2021

In November 2021, we hosted a series of EightOS workshops in the context of Ama: Care, Repair, Healing exhibition at Martin Gropius Bau. Our objective was to explore the topics of this exhibition through touch, inviting the participants to create a participatory immersive environment for embodied learning. Every day was planned around a specific concept that approached the main topics of the exhibition from a certain perspective. Together with NSDOS, we created a generative soundscape that used our own and the participants' movements to change the sonic atmosphere in the space. This was the first time we tried our newly developed Tripod WiFi motion tracking sensors in a public setting. Our intention was to see how we can transmit ideas through physical interaction, experimenting with the concepts of care, repair, and healing — as well as the more general concepts, such as resilience and regeneration — on the level of a temporary...
