Ballet dance traces

Nov 7, 2014

Electronic Traces, by Lesia Trubat, tracks ballet movements and allows dancers to see the traces of their feet.

The concept of Electronic Traces is based on capturing dance movements and transforming them into visual sensations through the use of new technologies. To do this we focused on the ballet shoes themselves, which through the contact with the ground, and thanks to Lilypad Arduino technology, record the pressure and movement of the dancer’s feet and send a signal to an electronic device.A special application will then allow us to show this data graphically and even customize it to suit each user, through the different functions of this app.

The results are quite nice. See it in action in the video below.
