GHISLAINE BODDINGTON

About

Ghislaine Boddington is an artist researcher, dramaturge, curator and thought leader specialising in body responsive technologies, recognised as an international pioneer in full body telepresence. She has created live links between thousands of participants/audiences across the world for educational, performing arts and creative industries usage since the mid-nineties.

Ghislaine extends natural interface techniques, advocating the use of the entire body as an interaction canvas. Her work examines the representation of our physical selves and our identities in virtual environments and the hyper enhancement of our human senses through the digital transmission/reception of body data, such as touch, motion, biofeedback and gesture.

As a dramaturge she has led numerous interdisciplinary creation projects, experimenting with the convergence of the live body with virtual environments, telepresence, motion capture and sense/gesture tech.

Recent dramaturgical input for virtual/physical immersive installations include ‘me and my shadow‘ with UK artist Joseph Hyde and ‘Visions of Our Communal Dreams‘ with UK/US Artist Michael Takeo Magruder. You can see more of her work online at body>data>space.
