Request to participate in a research project
Choreographing emergent corporeality in technological mediated environments
You are requested to participate in a research project that examines choreography of emergent corporeality in technological mediated environments.
The research is conducted as an iterative process with a case study experiment following with artistic components.
Research participants are representing a general performance art or media art audience. In the case study they are invited to experience a virtual artwork Skeleton Conductor XR Art and to take part a study which examines the nature and quality of a virtual art experience. Spectators can take part in the research by replying to a short online questionnaire after the performance (group A) or in addition participate in a focus group interview session and donate their movement tracking data to be used for research purposes (group B).
Participation in the research is voluntary. You can refuse to participate in the research or discontinue your participation at any time without reporting the reason and without consequences. If you want to cancel your participation, inform the researcher: firstname.lastname@example.org
The case study of a new digital performance art is twofold. Audience is requested to book their individual experience slot to experience the artwork. Viewer is guided to gear up with VR- equipment (head mounted display and trackers) and instructed how to interact with the artwork. Participants experience the 12-minute-long artwork in which they conduct the audio-visual feedback with their movements.
After experiencing the artwork, they are asked to reflect upon the nature and qualities of their experience by filling in a semi-structured online questionnaire. Response time 5-10 minutes.
(Only for group B) Research participants are invited to a focus group interview, to further reflect upon the embodied qualities through a discussion and visual reflection. Duration of interview 45-60 minutes. They will also agree to the recording of their movement tracking data during the experiencing of the artwork and to donate this data for artistic research purposes.
Possible disadvantages and inconvenience caused by participation
Caused disadvantages or inconveniences are minimal. If the virtual simulation produces discomfort, such as difficulty maintaining balance or motion sickness, it is possible to experience the work seated or abort the experience. The research subject is instructed of the use of VR viewing device and means of communication with the audience guide how to interrupt the experience.
Funding for the research
The researcher funds the research independently from various sources that fund research and artistic work. Funders are not tied to the research or its results. The research takes place as dissertation research at the Performing Arts Research Center of the University of the Arts Helsinki.
Compensation paid for participation
No remuneration is paid for participation in the research.
The research will result in publicly presented participatory artistic works open to the public.
Published scientific articles, conference presentations and dissertation.
Documentation of the artistic parts of the research in a research catalogue exhibition or other digital format online as public and / or password encrypted.
