The interactive installation Double Skin/ Double Mind is a virtual interactive version of the Double Skin/Double Mind workshop. This workshop, which has been taught by dance company Emio Greco | PC since 1996, represents the basis of the creative work of choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten. Participants in this workshop are challenged to discover new interpretations of their dancing body through the movement tracking program Gesture Follower developed by Frédéric Bevilacqua (IRCAM). As result of this comparison different feedback, including emotive icons, sonification and text displays is given through an interface lay out developed by Chris Ziegler. Participants are accompanied by different visualization and sonic information while mentally and physically travelling through the Double Skin/ Double Mind structure. Professional as well as non-professional dancers are invited to experience this installation.
