The video, unnamed sound sculpture, was created using multiple Kinect ranging systems to capture a dancers motion in the round.  The motion data is edited in a set of overlapping segments that are rendered using multiple particle systems to create a sand like particle flow cascading from the ever forming choreographic movement.  The second clip demonstrates some of the production process including variations on the dynamic simulations used to render the piece (both clips include notes on the work). The third clip is a trailer created for the ImPulsTanz dance festival and shows other variations in rendering the dancers movement:

Forms, A series videos created from motion capture simulations based on 2D cinematography were used  to create a dynamic set of abstracted motion graphics interpretations of athletic movement for In the Blink of an Eye: Media and Movement exhibition at Great Britain’s National Media Museum.  Memo Akten and Quayola worked with a team at Nexus Interactive Arts to realize the pieces.  Note how the sound design enhances the sense of physical presence created by the lighting and motion of the abstractions in these excerpts:
