MoCap LLS Class - Active Learning

MOTION CAPTURE for Art, Research, and the Health Sciences

How and why things move has long captured the interest of artists, researchers, and the public. Motion capture, or MoCap, represents the diversity of techniques that enable recording, analyzing, and describing movement for applications in entertainment, education, communication, health care, and the general sciences.

In this studio-based seminar, students will interact with faculty and experts in the use of MoCap to learn various techniques and applications for capturing and studying movement. Students will have access to state-of-the-art equipment and techniques like stop-motion stroboscopy, high-resolution technical photography, high-speed video, and 3D reconstruction with multi-camera arrays in order to explore the research and artistic implications of this rapidly developing technology.

We will look at examples of athletic movement, dance choreography, the flight of animals, and many others. Our explorations will take us from the design studio setting to the MoCap lab to the Filmmaking stage and beyond into the field.
