In December 2015 I initiated a Lab for movement and technology research, the MovLab, which has since then been meeting monthly at SPEKTRUM, a place for art and technology related events, performances, exhibitions and conferences.
My goal was to bring people from the tech domain, from the arts, design research, social sciences and other fields together for exchange, inspiration, joint research and collective projects which were located at the intersection of the body, technology and art.
At MovLab we are researching ways to digitize motion and the human body and to make the data accessible for further use in VR, gaming, stage performance or art. We are building sensors, writing code and explore new ways of moving.
At our community meetings we get together and experiment. Some of us may be trained professionals others are completely new to the field. There is nothing you need to know or have to join us, apart from respect for the people around you. We embrace diversity in thoughts, bodies and looks! We take the unknown and unfamiliar as inspiration and as a challenge to rethink ourselves.
We especially welcome those who are often underrepresented in the tech domain!
Also, we strongly believe in the Berlin Code of Conduct.
A website featuring all members and the work of the Lab will be online soon, until then learn about our next meetings at SPEKTRUM here, follow us on tumblr or join our Facebook group for currently debated topics and news.
