CIGALE est un projet de recherche pluridisciplinaire scientifique et artistique d’étude du mouvement gestuel. Articulé autour d'une plateforme de création de gestes et d’interaction, CIGALE permet l'étude du geste et l'émergence de nouveaux gestes pour la création.
InterACTE with CIGALE
We present two installations: InterACTE and InterACTE'IN
InterACTE is an artistic and interactive installation that proposes to play and to improvise with a virtual body in interaction with an autonomous digital character in an immersive virtual environment. The character can respond by generating gestures with a genetic algorithm. This algorithm is based on meaningful gestures captured on real actors (such as a mime, a poet, a linguist and a choral conductor). The installation is presented in different universes (with a skeleton in a wonder-room or with an abstract character in a world made of crystal) on two different mediums :
- The first one, InterACTE, proposes to interact in front of the digital character on a projected screen; the user can see his virtual arms and can improvise with the actor.
- The second one, InterACTE’in, allows interacting inside the virtual world (on a HMD) with his virtual body in an embodied and sensitive choreography made of gestures.
