Diploma project, ECAL 2019


by Luca Sassoli de Bianchi

Teacher(s): Alain Bellet, Pauline Saglio, Gaël Hugo, Christophe Guignard

This project is an exploration in guiding the other. It is a human-to-human movement based interface that allows to asymmetrically link two people together, thus becoming the mind and the body of a bigger entity: their duo.

What do we experience by becoming the master of the other’s movement? And what do we feel by lending our body to the other’s directions? Alterway is also a game for which this new interface has been optimised, where the linked duo is challenged in a symbolic duel against another duo, allowing to test the strength of their links.
