Body Editing / Ozone Media Choreography System
The Body Editing project is an interactive environment using the Nintendo Kinect and data projectors in an installation space, allowing usersâ€™ gestures and movements to â€œeditâ€ raw film footage. The film footage used comes from a film in process, â€œ8 Count,â€ directed by Lynn Kamm and funded by Bravo!FACT; it explores the layered percussive sounds of the boxing arena. 8 Countâ€™s boxing scenario creates rhythmic movement both from boxing movements (or â€œdancingâ€ feet) and gloved hands punching. The film layers these audio sounds with interesting percussive and musical elements, while the narrative plays off and highlights the boxers movements as dance.
