Karakuri: Shadows Working on the World

Presented by Even Eidsten Westvang at VSMM

"Abstract: Within the context of artistic practice as a methodological resource I have built an augmented reality system that allows unencumbered interaction with a structured physics system. The resulting installation artwork is cast as an experimental design laboratory. The 'laboratory' is set wihtin a clearly delineated sub domain of interaction where a rich set of embodied knowledge can inform performativity on the part of users. This allows its further application to a setting of unscripted performance where an anticipatory design process seeks to structure interaction. This paper outlines the components of such an anticipatory design process, theories it can be informed by and within which domains of embodied knowledge it can function. Details of the interdisciplinary and developmental piece Karakuri are presented and analysed. Directions for future research are suggested." [PDF] [Quicktime video]
