The Mirrored Body
From the Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Movement and Computing The Mirrored Body: Sensation, Agency and Expression in a Video Processed World Todd Winkler Brown University Abstract Real-time video processing in multimedia performances can create a video double that recalibrates understandings of both on screen and physical bodies. This mirrored bodily exchange affords new experiences of agency, sensation and expression in the context of theatrical performances. Careful attention is paid to creating a life-size mirror image that places the processed body in close relationship with the living body. These video processing techniques find their purpose as characters in storytelling for theatre and dance.
