Biosignal Augmented Embodied Performance

Publication Type:

Conference/Workshop Paper




We explore the phenomenology of embodiment based on research through design and re ection on the design of arte- facts for augmenting embodied performance. We present three designs for musicians and a dancer; the designs rely on the artists’ mastery acquired from years of practice. Through the knowledge of the living body, their instruments —cello, flute and dance— are extensions of themselves; thus, we can explore technology with rich nuances and precision in corporeal schemas. With the help of Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology of embodiment we present two perspectives for augmented embodied performance: the interactively enacted teacher, and the humanisation of technology.
