ALMA & Paloma Leyton


Groundless is a 3D animation creation that displays a diversity of weightless bodies moving to the rhythm of an acoustic music soundtrack. The work brings together an aerial circus artist and two musicians that make use of improvisation, motion capture, video game engines, and spiking neural networks (SNN) to explore the expressive qualities of virtual bodies in suspension. Over time, the interactions between virtual bodies, music, and SNN generates an emerging sense of temporal organizations.

ALMA & Paloma Leyton mix circus aerial techniques, acoustic music, motion capture, video game engines, and AI algorithms to explore the hybridisation of human movements with computing processes and the representation of bodies in virtual worlds.
