Abstract

Movement design is typically based on evoking shapes in space. In interactive systems, user movement is often dictated by the system’s sensing capabilities. In neither of these cases are the differences across individual users or expressive variations they make accommodated. We present an exploratory study that uses Laban Movement Analysis as a framework for designing gesture, and electromyogram (EMG) signals for measuring gestural output. We were interested to see if these approaches for specifying and measuring gesture could produce and capture a “sameness” in gesture that in terms of gross spatial movement may be quite different.
