Hsin-Chien Huang’s Performance Art Piece Creates Visual Sculptures from Dancer Movements; 3D Printed Keepsakes Made from Motion Capture Data
An exploration of the past is nothing new to the art world; a performance that bends 3D projections to its will, however, is something to see. Blending complex imagery with dance, 3D printing and Xsens motion capture, “The Inheritance” is earning rave reviews for a story about the spiritual pains that remain in families after a state of national unrest.
Created by Storynest Director, Hsin-Chien Huang, “The Inheritance” wrestles with a time when Taiwan was under martial law. Closed borders, and the inability to communicate with people outside of Taiwan left many stranded abroad. Aid attempts discovered by the Investigation Bureau resulted in harassment at your home or on the street, leading to a state of constant fear in the populace.
Now that martial law is no more, Huang is still intrigued by state-sanctioned history and everything it conceals. Through “The Inheritance,” Huang grapples with his family’s struggle, using dance and various forms of new media to turn memories into a form of visual sculpture.
