Double Skin/Double Mind Interactive Installation Preview in AmsterdamEmio Greco | PC, the Research Group Art Practice and Development at the Amsterdam School of the Arts and Cinedans are very happy to invite you to the Double Skin/Double Mind Interactive Installation Preview which will be held on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th June from 16h00 until 20h00, in the Beeldmedia Studio at the Amsterdam School of the Arts, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Beeldmedia Studio Jodenbreestraat 3 1017 PN AmsterdamThe Interactive Installation Double Skin/ Double Mind is a virtual version of the Double Skin/Double Mind workshop. This workshop, which has been taught by dance company Emio Greco | PC since 1996, represents the basis of the creative work of choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten. Participants in this workshop are challenged to discover new interpretations of their dancing body.
Throughout 2006 an interdisciplinary research group, consisting of dance notators Eliane Mirzabekiantz and Marion Bastien, motion capture researcher Frédéric Bevilacqua, cognitive neuroscientist Corinne Jola, media artist Chris Ziegler, cinematography Maite Bermudez, artistic research processes Scott de Lahunta and EG | PC researcher Bertha Bermudez, has been focusing on this specific workshop trying to analyse and document it.
The different data from each research area have been collected, and interactive graphic visualisation tools and motion capture were re implemented to create this preview of the Interactive Installation Double Skin/ Double Mind. The current installation offers participants the possibility of taking part in a virtual version of the workshop in real time, while receiving verbal, physical and peripheral information. By following a life size moving figure, the participants will recognize, compare and understand their actions and involvement in the practice of this workshop. They will travel through the Double Skin/ Double Mind structure in a mental and physical way, experiencing what the different layers are.
