I've been using the Kinect camera to track body movement. I saw an
infrared block at Goldsmith's that one of the grad students was
using. It scans fingertips. I've also created sensors with such
things as a teetertotter.
getting the data is fairly simple. What you do with it is the
question. Or maybe that's where the art occurs. I like the idea of a
feedback loop. It does depend upon what you produce for you or the
viewer to react to. In other word you produce some data, you percieve
it and then alter your actions to produce new data based on your
reaction. I've done this in performance art where I've been feed back
samples of my own voice by Peter Sinclair, I then reacted/
incorporated the feedback into the performance in a sort of echo
improvisation on the the feedback.
