(Virtual) | the body in\verse
the body in\verse is an online, interactive performance that combines biophysical sensing, emotive state sonification and visualization, and generative poetry to create the scene. The performance provides a deep dive from the world outside of ourselves that is dissociated by mediated technology into the deep interoceptive abyss of our emotive sea.
The performance is comprised of three elements:
- An AI algorithm that generates poetry.
- A biophysical sensing system that measures the biophysical state of the performer, and then uses that data to drive the sound, abstract imagery, and a generative poetry algorithm.
- A performance that combines movement, sound, abstract imagery, and text.
The performer’s movements and actions are influenced by the AI’s poetry, which is being influenced by the emotive analysis of the performer based on her physiological state.
