McCormick, John & Hutchison, Stephanie (2014) Emergence. [Performance]
Emergence by John McCormick, Steph Hutchison and an emerging performing agent, is a duet performed between a human dancer and an artificially intelligent performing agent. The agent has learnt to dance through a rehearsal process with the dancer, sharing the dancer’s movement and style. Emergence sees the dancer and agent co-creating an interactive semi-improvised dance performance. Visualisations of their relationship are projected in glorious Stereoscopic 3D. The neural network based agent uses a motion capture system as its sensory input for understanding the dancer’s movement.
Emergence is the result of John and Steph’s collaborations with Motion.lab and the Centre for Intelligent Systems Research at Deakin University. The artists dreamed of a performance environment that could learn to understand the dancer and collaborate in the creative process of performance making. Emergence is the result.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
