Kinesics is the interpretation of body motion communication, expressions and gestures. Largely speaking it is ‘body-language’, and accounts for a vast amount of inter-personal communication. This was a project aimed at exploring the verbosity of such movement, to explore the limits and find new means to use it to communicate with a technologically enhanced environment.
Gestural human computer interaction has quickly become part of daily routine, scenes from science fiction films such as ‘Minority Report’ made reality by devices like the Kinect, Leap Motion and even the ubiquitous smartphone. Kinesic intended to create a wearable, individually controlled means to interact, moving away from machine vision towards a democratised, participatory model of digitally-activated environments.
