Senses Places moves in

*sensesplacesff1Senses Places has taken up residence on the Odyssey Simulator with a new sky platform for rehearsals and performances.

Senses Places uses a live webcam interface to read movements of participants IRL. The interface then translates these movements to the participant’s avatar in virtual space. Another layer is added as RL dancers in remote locations interact with large-scale projections of these dancing avatars.

At one of Senses Places’ most recent events on Odyssey dancers in Portugal improvised against live projections of Second Life avatars (whose movement are being triggered by the webcam interfaces of Liz Solo and Isabel Valverde)
