Audience: Zayed University Students, Level: Foundation / Intermediate
Using a special Xbox Kinect 3D depth camera, students documented gestures in different workplaces. At ISEA2014, workshop participants, especially students, will explore this approach in Dubai and make their own gesture files and prints. The final project will create print and digital captures of gesture, and will contribute to a hybrid print and digital dictionary that builds on the collaborative gathering of meaningful gestures. Workshop methods include:- viewing and evaluating gesture in a range of contemporary artist and student projects- instruction in the use of digital video for documentation, and in the operation of the Prime Sense and Xbox Kinect based mocap cameras, developed by the Instructor, Fei Jun and their GestureCloud team in Toronto/Beijing.
