Kinectic_Bodies Workshop (Basic Kinect)

Since I will have a Kinectic workshop in 2 weeks for the MSC2 Design Studio of HyperBody LAB, TU Delft. I would like to posts the tutorials which I haven't shared before. The workshop is call the Kinetic Bodies Workshop which mainly focuses on the discussion Body Instrument. More information can be found on the WIKI of this workshop.

So here are the tutorials:

HyperBody:_3 Intensive Workshops (Diverse + Animate + Kinectic)

For the coming 3 weeks, 3 intensive workshops will happen in HyperBody LAB, TU Delft.
The workshops attempt to warm up and pick up the skills and mindset for the coming MSc2 studio of HyperBody LAB: Inter_Performing Environment

Diverse Bodies + Animate Bodies + Kinectic Bodies
( Generate Monster + Emotive Monster + Bodies Monster )


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The "Diverse Bodies" workshop mainly focuses on the relationship between simple variables and complex geometries. In other words, how to create various and diverse geometries out of simple but elegant rules and parameters. In nature, all organisms follows this beautiful simple-to-complex notion to build up bodies. Therefore, the workshop will try to implement this natural growth inspiration to a spatial application. The tool this workshop will mainly be used is Processing. All participants will learn from basic to advance techniques of Processing.

The "Animate Bodies" workshop mainly focuses on the interaction between human and spatial environment. Further than normal adaptation in nature, the workshop proposes the space itself becomes a living creature. The possible answer of the questions, such as, how this spatial creature reacts? What is its motion respond to the human involved in will extensively being discussed. The workshop also tries to reverse the conventional spatial ideas of static and passive into dynamic and aggressive. The tool this workshop will mainly be used is Arduino, Grasshopper & Firefly. All participants will learn from basic to advance techniques of these interactive techniques.

The "Kinectic Bodies" workshop mainly focuses on the discussion of "Body-Instrument". The workshop attempts to propose an idea of taking human body as a performer who can play the instrument of space. In other words, our body motions can physically trigger the movement of spatial environment. Moreover, by extending the notion from Animate_Bodies workshop, space itself can be treated as a living creature, so the instrument will no longer be an passive object but an active subject. The interaction between body and space will be more like the chemistry of  partners at a dance performance. The tool this workshop will mainly be used is Processing and XBOX Kinect device. All participants will learn from basic techniques of Kinect.

Looking forward seeing some nice results.
