An Approach to the Content-to-Content Interactivity in Performing Arts over Networks
This paper discusses another potential dimension of interactivity in networked performance that enables the real time imagery of performer’s impression and the continuous reaction of actors in different locations as if they were in the same stage. To realize this, an artist makes croquis of the scene immediately during the actual performance seeing the video received from far end site in real time via internet. Simultaneously, the captured video of the drawing croquis is transmitted back to the screen of the far end site. As a result, the content-to-content interactivity can form an sympathetic stage. To demonstrate its effectiveness, the author applied the concept to the Internet2 Distributed Interactive Multimedia Performance at NYU, US.
