The interactive dance piece is a solo performance choreographically depicting desire and fear. Metaphorically pointing at the need to be close yet fearing the uncertainty of closeness through movements of push and pull. The closer the dancer is to the sensor, the brighter the display becomes, likewise the farther they are, the dimmer it becomes.
A belt of ultrasonic sensors around the LED display will sense the proximity to the dancer and use that information to either brighten or dim the LEDs.
(Rephrased Elizabeth’s description)
After our first in-class play test, we realized we needed to do another accurate play test, so we picked two LED lights one with a red filter to depict two dancers and their distance to the center piece as our initial idea involved two dancers.
