This is for prototype for thesis “Computational distortion environment with shape-shifting methodology”.
The Shape-shifting concept meaning is the ability of a being to physically transform into another form or entity.
At first, the light. I want to express the change of inanimate object with shape-shifting. The body change like a breathing action can make controlling lightness function in real lighting.

The earliest 1960s Toledo expressions of studio glass art: Are they immature - signs of a struggle with material and technique? Or are they radical objects, worthy of art historical stature in their own right? Adamson suggests that these literally "informal" works might be adopted as models of progressive practice.
Breakdown is an interactive audiovisual dance performance presented at the Ears Eyes and Feet event in the B. Iden Payne Theater, May 2014, UT Austin Texas.
Breakdown explores a 2 dimensional simulated world in which its physical rules are constantly being changed and manipulated by an external entity. An inhabitant of this world is in constant motion to adapt to its characteristics. He interacts with the physical rules and develops a dialogue with the entity who controls the forces. Eventually the inhabitant ends up breaking the world's rules and release himself into a new world, a new dimension.
The dancers’s movements and gestures are captured by two Kinect cameras on stage, creating an interactive dialog with the music and visuals.
