Innovation in Interaction, with Technology & Performance Arts

Wolfsbloem

connects performance arts and technology, through interaction design. In each project human bodies, bodily movement and expressivity are corner stones of the research and results. The projects all start from a creative point of view and, from there, develop in either an artistic performance and a product or service.

Both paths support the projects by creating new opportunities for further development and financial funding. By using the freedom which comes with art and the aim for an artistic outcome leads to great opportunities; the arise of the products and services that are not related to any conventional existing outcomes that are accepted by society.

Wolfsbloem encourages society to embrace art and differences in and between culture, while benefiting from the outcomes of the practical research. Both from an artistic viewpoint as a practical usability point of view.

Wolfsbloem was founded on 1 January 2017, by Fleur Leloup.

PROJECTS

UniTie, 2016 - present

UniTie

physical sound manipulation for movement play in group settings

UniTie is a physical game in which a small group of people manipulates and creates a music piece (soundscape) through group movements. It focuses on collaboration and creation, but leaves out competitiveness. UniTie is currently being tested in different set-ups and groups of participants. The team is also researching different soundscapes and their effects and results on group dynamics.

UniTie is currently being tested in Education and Teambuilding.

ARTISTS: UniTie has a performers call on the 7th of May! See the support section below.

Initiate

movement and light choreography

"One way to go, no let’s take the other way. Right or left? Straight ahead, don’t stop. Or turn around, but, don’t, stop. Wait here. Does waiting demand for standing stil? And what is the meaning of standing stil? That we stop or is it just a break? And if it’s a break, doesn’t it mean that we stop temporarily? Let’s wait. No let’s move again."

In collaboration with:

Lisanne Wouters (dancer, choreographer)

Decelerated Acceleration, 2016

Decelerated Acceleration

movement project

"Forces. In opposite directions. Forces to start moving. Or to stagnate. Forces to forge ahead. Or to get stopped. Tensions we don’t see and tensions we see. Or think to see. Tensions from outside. Or inside. Or both. We activate, or brake."

In collaboration with:

Sophie van Grinsven (dancer, choreographer), Manon Sloos (dancer)

Performed at:

Over de IJssel-Landgoed Marathon - Deventer (2016), Showcase ESDV Footloose - Verkadefabriek Den Bosch (2016)

Turning Points, 2016

Turning Points

interactive light installation

The installation consists of three copper pipes and several light particles that move in swarms. This installation brings the opportunity to have a close look at the behaviour of these specific swarms, in which light particles move together, guided by an invisible force.

When the lights are dimmed or off the light particles become visible, moving over the pipes. Each light particle has its own attraction characteristics which causes different movements, but all move together as a swarm in the same direction. This direction turns every time they reach the top or bottom of the pipe.
