The Digital Studios

EXPERIMENTAL DIGITAL STUDIOS

As part of the research for the Physical Actor Training online A-Z we are holding several experimental digital studio sessions for exploring technology in physical training environments.

By introducing cameras into the space we are able to utilise the lens’ investigative quality to animate the experience of training. In capturing an alternative visual perspective through use of GoPro on body camera, live feed and split screen we hope to offer a new way to question:

  • the movement intention (where is the impulse?)
  • the trajectory of the movement
  • the movement dynamic
  • orientation in space

The digital studio also presents various modes of digital interaction beyond live presence. For example the use of on screen text and animation to direct students through improvised tasks, reframing the teacher trainee relationship.
