Canon

2019 | 3D Animation | Blender 3D | Microsoft Kinect | Motion Capture

In Canon, I sculpture a dancing body inside a ghostly head with open-source 3D software, Blender, then synchronize my body movement with the 3D object through a Kinect sensor. These works incorporated the spirit of physical practices designed to benefit people's well-being, such as Qigong and Yoga. Like the original definition in music, "Canon is a contrapuntal (counterpoint-based) compositional technique that employs a melody with one or more imitations of the melody played after a given duration," Canon represents the changing synchronization of the inner mind and outer appearance of human body, as well as implies the invisible coordination between computer algorithms and the input data from man's determination. Infusing my soul into a computer-generated object, Canon is a sublimation of cooperation between humans and machines.
