From screen to body

Margherita Landi, Agnese Lanza

Screens are progressively getting closer to the user, changing the interaction and the engagement between these technologies and the body. The content watched and how it is experienced has also a powerful impact on the emotional state, opening new forms of embodiment.

After several stages of research, Margherita Landi and Agnese Lanza approached Virtual Reality, developing a method playfully based on interaction between audiovisual material and movement.

This way of dealing with the VR generates two different levels of fruition: the dimension of an "inside" the headset, where an intimate experience only visible to the user takes place and, at the same time, an "outside" the headset, showing how the VR experience affects the body of the user.

Biography

Margherita Landi

Coreografa, danzatrice e antropologa dal 2014 si occupa di ricerca su corpo e nuove tecnologie e come questa relazione trasformi alcuni dei rituali umani più comuni, nel tempo ha esplorato Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Projection mapping e diversi social media. Negli ultimi due anni si è concentrata sul VR per il potenziale di embodiment che offre questa tecno- logia, studiando tecniche di trasmissione coreografica attraverso il visore VR, nel 2020 il suo progetto coreografico “X-Dealing with Absence” è stato selezionato da Biennale College Cine- ma VR. Il suo lavoro mira a una riflessione sull’utilizzo consapevole della tecnologia come strumento esperienziale e creativo, eliminando la dicotomia umano/artificiale che tende ad attribuire allo strumento tecnologico una valenza negativa, interpretandolo invece come possibile estensione del corpo stesso, quindi in grado di “aumentare” l’esperienza che di esso si può fare.

Agnese Lanza
