Worldwide representatives of varied groups met there. Their problem used to be to arrive a mutual knowing permitting a choreographer to entry robotics ideas, or a working laptop or computer scientist to appreciate the subtleties of dance notation.

Example text

The sculpture’s movements are affected by the proximity of the viewer, who becomes both audience and participant. The sculptural installations consist of a large number (from dozens to hundreds) of sensors and actuators; from the robotics perspective, the sculpture can be considered as a robot with a large number of degrees of freedom. However, unlike many robots, it is not anthropomorphic, but rather, emulates non-human natural forms, akin to a forest canopy. The sensors detect the presence and proximity of visitors and generate movements and other activation in response.

2 illustrate expressive arm/hand movements choreographed to create affective responses in a theatre audience. Fig. 2 Left photo Illustrates an expansive, all-encompassing joy in dancer’s lightly held arms with controlled fingers miming repetitive quick, “talking” gestures; in contrast to the singer’s delicate precisely-focused appeal. Right photo Illustrates a light, sustained, fluid enclosing gesture of shy love in response to a gentle touch. J. Burton et al. Our approach aims to formalize and quantify the relationship between perceived movement qualities and measurable features of movements, to enable this relationship to be exploited for automated recognition and generation of affective movement.

Direction along a pathway is usually significant, but this was not left free for the actor in the first and second sets. Palm facing and finger movements are also of emotional import, but variability was minimized, especially in the first set. A natural tendency to transfer expressive movements to other parts of the body, such as torso and shoulder, especially when the arm and hand movements were limited, would not be taken into account in this study due to the limitations of structure of the robotic frond.
