DANCING WITH SWARMING PARTICLES is an interactive installation and performance that intends to explore the relationship between a physical user/performer and a virtual performer the “avatar” which has the physical characteristics of morphing flocking particles.
Dancing With Swarming Particles [full performance] [25.02.2011 – Barcelona]
The avatar’s body is composed of flocking particles that initially float in the virtual space without any apparent order. It is through the energy of the physical user/performer’s movements that the particles will start to morph into the avatar’s body.
