research projects & publications
My work with disabled students at the University of California, Riverside gave rise over a period of time to a number of research projects having to do with human/computer interaction. I have been especially interested in the expressive power of gesture and its application to interactive media performance. At IRCAM I developed a custom data glove that led to several musical projects (see the Glove Project) as well as research papers and presentations. Out of this a collaboration developed with Vincent Hayward (see Collaborators) on the topic of haptic feedback systems and their use with gestural controllers. More recently I have been developing and performing with augmented acoustic instrument systems (see MiMICS), and investigating the use of new photographic and video techniques as a means to capture gesture as an aesthetic object and as an object of analysis (see Studies in Movement).
