Motion project by Maria Takeuchi and Frederico Phillips uses performative dance captured with two XBox One Kinect sensors, presented in an abstracted yet recognizable and fluid form:

Here is a Making-Of video showing how the work was put together:

The project is an effort to explore new ways to use and/or combine technologies and different fields in an experiment without many of the common commercial limitations. The performance is centered in an eloquent choreography that stresses the desire to be expressive without bounds.

Motion data was captured using inexpensive sensors and that data paved the way through an extensive number of steps.  Once all the scanned point cloud data was combined, that was then used as the base for the creative development on the piece.  A series of iterative studies on styles followed and several techniques and dynamic simulations were then applied using a number 3D tools for various results.

Oye te ves bien guapa hoy. De verdad. Así sin vidrios en los ojos por lo que no sucedió, sin la sonrisa finginda. Te ves bien guapa hoy. Ya no estás para cuentos sino para vivir como poesía. Te ves bien guapa hoy. Tú no quieres estar destruida ni gritar demencia sólo necesitas un abrazo y darle al mundo las perlas de tus labios sin motivos. Qué bueno que se fue porque mira: Te ves bien guapa hoy
