Check out the Conference Session with the team behind the XR Experience project Figural Bodies: https://schedule.sxsw.com/2023/events/PP127701
"Figural Bodies," created with Candoco Dance, is active research towards deconstructing mocap data from its enforced normative algorithms, celebrating subversion and difference in the immersive representation of bodies. Disabled dancers in Austin and London, connected by Goldsmiths Mocap Streamer, seek to share embodied communication through virtual interaction. The dancers communicate through a co-created movement vocabulary, using motion data and machine learning to push the boundaries of how bodies can be represented in the Metaverse. Future Art and Culture is produced by British Underground at SxSW funded by Arts Council England with additional support in 2023 from the British Council.
