Bernd Lintermann, Nik Haffner, Thomas McManus »TimeLapses« (2000 - 2003)
In 2000 we started the project Time Lapses which was planned as artistic research in the form of a loose series of working periods for investigating the potentials of using motion capture technology in dance. Over three years we set up a series of technical setups we called experiments. Each experiment focuses on comparing certain properties of media versus body in time and space, e.g. continuity vs. discontinuity, time delays caused by signal latencies versus its use as a visual representation of memory and so on. The experiments encompassed aspects such as the transformation and abstract visualization of body movement or the confrontation with and feedback from ones own moving data. The project was initiated and realized by media-artist Bernd Lintermann and the dancers/choreographers Nik Haffner and Thomas McManus at the Institute for Visual Media | ZKM Center for Art and Technology in Karlsruhe.
