Genera | An Interactive Sculpture

Genera is an interactive performance that explores the impact society has on how we view ourselves. The performer acts as a living sculpture, whose body and movements are affected by audience interactions. The performer’s movement and the presence of white tumors are tracked by motion capture system. The data is then used to animate the virtual character and change its shape in real-time.

I worked as a motion capture engineer for the project. I also worked with the performer to ensure the act fits well with the strengths/weaknesses of the technology.
