Movement in Time, Part 2, live version (2020)

The live version of Movement in Time, Part 2 was proposed to an exhibition originally scheduled to show in Shenzhen in mid 2020. Owing to the covid-19 situation, the exhibition was postponed without any new schedule yet.

The work is a modified version of the original Movement in Time, Part 2. Instead of using existing martial film fighting sequences, the live version will employ a camera to capture the movement of the visitors to generate the cursive style Chinese calligraphic characters.

The first approach made use of a regular webcam to capture the optical flow of the visitor’s movement.

The second approach made use of a depth camera (Primesense) to capture the skeleton movement to identify the closest matched Chinese character.
