STEER - William Yong
Steer exposes imaginary inner worlds through a fusion of biology, technology. The interplay of sound, visuals and light drives movement, interacting with and responding to sensors. We direct our focus and energy between the internal and external worlds by modulating the speed and dynamics of our own motion. The performance establishes a bridge to a dreamlike state and manifests the hidden world of thought into reality.
Dancer’s movements are processed through frameworks of technology: real time motion capture, infrared light and camera, accelerometer motion sensors and piezoelectric sensors. The inputs from these sensors are interpreted in real-time by computer software, sound artist and visual artist to produce interactive lighting, sounds and visuals that are both initiated by and and generated by the dancer’s movements.
