Vast Body is an ongoing experiment on movement. Our collaborators were invited to imagine and embody, in front of a camera, a wide spectrum of postures that Vast Body's artificial neural network can "see" and understand. In the installation, the alter ego continuously tries to replicate the upper-body movements of the visitor facing it. Vast Body performs its own interpretation of the visitors' behaviours.
