E-motion is a collaborative research project between a dancer, a computer scientist and an electrical engineer. It aims to explore how mood can be represented in Web-accessed 3D virtual environments using choreographed electronic motion. Groups of choreographed anthropomorphic agents take dance into a new place creating dynamic mood environments. Viewers’ perceived emotional responses to four different mood portrayals have shown that different moods can be created and that choreography has a significant contribution to make to the future development of inhabited virtual worlds.
