Trace of Light connects a dancer / choreographer, a textile / costume designer, a lighting artist, a filmmaker and the development studio at the Digital Art Center at the Department of Computer and Systems Science at Stockholm University.
The project aims to explore how the dancer’s movements can create a ‘light painting’ on a facade / wall behind the dancer, in real time. Furthermore, the Trace of Light project will explore how different movement patterns correspond to the light lines that are created and how the choreography dictates specific light forms with specific movements. The project has investigated how interactive sensor-based lighting technology can be used in stage production to find new ways of visualizing movement. The result can be seen in this film.
