3D In Motion

Visual and audio experience

Project Info



3D In Motion (3DIM) is a system of capture, visualization and sonification of movements in real time. This experimental setup allows to create and control 3D graphics in real time with the entire body, as well as to generate sounds from the body motion. The user’s movements are tracked by a motion capture system (Vicon, Xsens or Kinect) and instantaneously converted into sound events and graphic content, which allows you for instance to sculpt in 3D with your body. Your movements are thus transformed into an interactive instrument while immersed in a surround sound environment.

This framework is dedicated to the scene and to real time performances. It can be used for DJ nights, dance performances or other artistic projects. The interaction can be done alone or with others.
