Motion capture is becoming ubiquitous in performance practice, playing a role in how the body becomes data, is visualised and in turn stimulates an expansion of interface development that impacts on how dance is encountered, viewed and analysed. This project examines the choices artists make in terms of composition, environment & duration when working with motion capture and related technologies to explore new questions about embodied human expression and communication.
The questions for this PhD are twofold: first it is whether the current legal framework for ICH can accommodate and support these contemporary forms of ICH and to consider the place of dance within this framework; and the second is as to the interface between these contemporary forms of ICH and copyright.
Candidates will seek to investigate how dance can contribute to already existing discussions about the mediation and understanding of extreme events and experiences. These discussions might include those taking place in: Literature and Trauma Studies, Critical Race Theory, Nationalism Studies, International Development, Human Rights Studies, and/or Women’s Studies.
The overall aim of this JIP accordingly is to avoid or minimise the occurrence of motion sickness in automated vehicles. The project aims at realising this by explicating the underlying causes of motion sickness in automated vehicles, adopt reliable, sensitive, and valid methods to assess its occurrence, and sketch ways it can be mitigated by adapted (automated) vehicle design and/or other countermeasures.
This PhD is intended to consider existing databases, the building of new databases and other starting points as a premise for exploring the potential for an emergent dance scholarship using digital methods. The student will be encouraged to develop their own approach in response to underpinning questions such as: What are the affordances of databases for dance scholarship? How might digital methods explore questions at the heart of dance studies? How effective are digital methods for the scholarly interrogation of dance? And how does the analysis of dance data shed light on the nature of the form?
