16 July 2012University of Bristol researcher Dr David Glowacki and an interdisciplinary team, including a choreographer and dancers from Pervasive Media Studio, have produced a performance entitled 'Hidden Fields' which will premiere at the Arnolfini on 21st July for the Bristol Harbourside Festival and then show on 5th August in Weymouth as part of the Cultural Olympiad alongside the Olympic Games sailing events.
By combining 3d camera and bespoke software Danceroom Spectroscopy (dS) interprets people's movements into energy fields to create sounds and images. The 21 metre 360° projection dome at the Weymouth Pavilion will show how the liquid particle bath changes in response to people's fields to produce immersive panoramic real-time images and sounds.
