7:00pm - 8:00pm. Open Perform: A New Way to Perform Live!
Travis Bennett will demonstrate OpenPerform’s integration with real-time motion capture using the  Perception Neuron. After the demonstration, we will invite the audience to explore and contribute to a new, experimental work.

OpenPerform brings real-time motion capture to artists and performers excluded by the high barriers to entry of expensive or "closed" systems like Unity. Free-flowing collaboration is the sine qua non of both open source code and art. Our open source javascript performance framework enables artists to take direct control of the medium, to quickly collaborate with others, and to easily craft new experiences for all web-based platform (including AR and VR).
