Challenge
As a dance maker, I am striving to practice my aesthetic concept of the bodies in Virtual Reality. The performance of my avatar in different software made collaborators (technicians, other virtual dancers) could constantly interpret my mocap practice. This situation was specifically located in the AR post-production workflow. My artistic choices may be hidden in the data structure, there are not only technical glitches but also the bias of analysis are implicated in the movements. To confront the challenge, I assume collaborators need new awareness to create better interactions.

Approach
Creating a new form of sense may meet the challenge. First, I initiated experiments about virtual bodies. Second, I applied technology and somatic principles to further explore my research interest: What happens when the physical bodies are transforming into digital space and time? Third, the choreographic tasks helped me to make an impact in a data application.

I am curious if invisible work is relatively personal content, how can a group of researchers explore their senses?
