The Poetics of Movement Quality Visualization

EMVIZ is an interactive artistic visualization engine that produces dynamic visual representations of Laban Basic-Efforts which are derived from the rigorous framework of Laban Movement Analysis. Movement data is obtained from a real-time machine-learning system that applies Laban Movement Analysis to extract movement qualities from a moving body. EMVIZ maps the Laban Basic-Efforts to design rules, drawing parameters, and color palettes for creating visual representations that amplify audience ability to appreciate and differentiate between movement qualities.

Members: Pat Subyen, Diego Maranan, Thecla Schiphorst, Philippe Pasquier, Lyn Bartram.
