Abstract [en]

This paper argues the issue of embodiment and gesture in games, the aesthetics of movement from the phenomenological point of view, and suggests a framework proposal for DAMA, a Dance and Media Art Network interdisciplinary network project, which integrates students and teachers from art schools and universities within the European Nordic and Baltic regions. This argument is supported by documentation of Shadow Dance installation that presents an interactive tool for corporal expressions, based on real-time movement capture, an open source and visual programming environment (Pure Data), all integrated within a web environment. The aim of this installation is to propose a different perspective based on corporal movement’s aesthetics via subjective expressions. It is one of the action points for the game development process, during interdisciplinary workshops, proposing content based on traditions in dance and physical theatre and encouraging the notions of presence and creative use of whole body movements across digital space and especially within physical games.
