Diffus Design was invited to the “Amber08 body-process art festival” in Istanbul 7-16 November 2008 for running an international workshop and present the outcome that we named Costume Choreography II. The result of the workshop was an interactive dance performance shown at Talimhane Theatre in Istanbul for the closing session of the Amber festival.
Two dancers were wearing our special designed costumes in which we have embedded luminescent patterns. Also, they were wearing a set of ultrasound sensors. As the two dancers were moving on the scene, the sensors measured the distance between them and changed the pattern configuration. We defined 4 zones of proximity, each with their own set of pattern language.
