Trace of Light is a collaborative project between a dancer / choreographer, a textile / costume designer, a light artist, a filmmaker and the development studio at Digital Art Center at the Department for Computer Science at Stockholm University.
The project will explore how the dancer’s movements can create a ‘light painting’ through light-based real-time optical tracking in the scenic space around the dancer. Furthermore, Trace of Light will explore how different motion patterns correspond to the light lines that are created and how the choreography dictates specific light patterns with specific movements. The project group wishes to explore how interactive light-based computer vision technology can be used in scenic production to find new ways of visualizing movement. The result will be compiled in a short film.
We are in this project mainly interested in the interaction movement, light, space. With light as medium we want to accentuate and deconstruct the movement.
