Waterwheel Patch Presentation at ISEA 2013 in Sydney by Suzon Fuks, James Cunningham and Ian Winters.
This video document relates our current research using mobile devices as a way of integrating remote physical movement and sound into the online structure of Waterwheel’s Tap allowing participation away from keyboard/mouse based computers. Taking a cue from research using sensors in dance, we are using phones carried by/attached to remote participants collecting sensor information on their movements and audio as content, feedback and control source for the Tap while they are exploring tracks and soundscapes of their local waterway/body of water in Australia, Indonesia, Europe, and USA: Brisa Mp – volunteer in Sydney, Russell Milledge & Rebecca Youdell – Bonemap in Cairns (Australia), Evelyn Ficarra & Kate Genevieve in Brighton (UK), and Mary Armentrout & Marcia Scott in San Francisco (USA).
Waterwheel co-founders Inkahoots are working to implement practical research results.
Ian has continue the research on Isadora. Have a look at this performance beginning of May!
Yesterday we had a first – very first – trial on the Tap itself.

Ian Winters, James Cunningham and I are in residence at Earthdance in the Berkshires, experimenting and developing a patch using cell phone sensor data (motion & location) to generate online performance.
The movements generated by James with the cell phone send data via the internet in order to draw.
Ian has continue the research on Isadora. Have a look at this last performance!
