Dance interactive motion capture environment created by Aaron Veryard and Megan Beckwith

Render is a dance installation that integrated game console multimedia. Veryard, a Brisbane based electronic artist used the inferred technology in Wii gaming console to track the movements of Beckwith. Her performed gestures were followed by sensors corresponding to projected images that trailed Beckwith’s movements, lighting the darkened room of the Engine Room performance space. This work examined the advantages (and pitfalls) of integrating new motion capture console technology in live art.
