RAM Dance Toolkit is a C++ creative coding toolkit to create environments for dancers. This toolkit contains a GUI and functions to access, recognize, and process motion data to support creation of various environmental conditions (called “scene”) and gives real time feedbacks to dancers using code in an easy way.
The pre-installed scenes provide the dancer with a way to recognize their subconscious movements by altering the dimensions of our everyday physical perception and creating a disparity from what we are used to. They inspire new ideas for dance. Here are some examples of the scenes.
The velocity of the movement taking place between the present and a few seconds past are analyzed and used to postulate the dancer’s position in an immediate future.
In this scene, the joints of the dancer are virtually expanded and displayed in the surrounding space.
