Ben Dunks

Motion Capture Artist


Ben has been working in dance for 22 years, performing, making, teaching, managing and exploring everything to do with the creative and moving body. For the past 18 months he has been capturing movement through motion capture and accelerometry, and investigating the moving body in health and education settings. As an Immersion Fellow, Ben is exploring technology as a way to measure the movement choices of older women, with the resultant data to be explored as a way to create visual art, short movement films, sound scores and possibly 3D printed sculptures. This is the beginning of a larger exploration into an easily applied falls prevention programme for this audience.
