The Perceivable Interface is a digital art project exploring human-technology interaction. The project is inspired by Jacques Lacan’s concept of the mirror stage, where infants recognize themselves in the mirror for the first time.
The project uses a full-body 3D motion capture sensor to capture dancers’ movements, which are then processed by customized software that creates glitchy silhouettes on a large-scale projection. The dancers’ experience of seeing themselves projected against the wall in real time enhances their bodily relationship with technology and creates a new form of improvisation. The project uses multi-sensory elements such as stereo sound and lighting to create an immersive experience.
The project aims to catalog various modes of human experience and quote them through visual storytelling.
