Thermospheric Station: seeking out the aesthetics of interactive post-digital artwork with the use of Gametrak

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Thermospheric Station is an interactive dance and sound collaboration using the game controller, Gametrak , as the interface to connect sound and movement. Gametrak’s motion tracking system is very simple compared to other interactive technology now days such as Kinect . In this article I explain how Gametrak was used in Thermospheric Station to create sound and dance improvisation with its very reduced and limited functions. Most importantly, I illuminate the aesthetics of the composition as a digital artwork with the use of motion tracking technology of the controller.
