Robbie Cooper's Immersion project

"Immersion is a project that records video of people 'through the screen' as they play games, use the internet and watch TV. There's three of us involved in the actual production of the footage– Andrew Wiggins is a camera man based in London, whilst Charly Smith is a First Assistant Director, also based in London. In 2010 we'll be working with the Media Center at Bournemouth University, on an 18 month study called 'War and Leisure', of teenagers and war in the media. Using the Facial Action Coding System, developed by Paul Ekman, we'll be analysing the reactions of teenagers to war in video games, movies, news footage, documentaries and online video. Outside of this study we're also filming people consuming a range of media– everything from the shopping channel, porn, sports, to programming created for babies."

L.A. Noire brings actors' full performance to gaming

"With a technology called MotionScan, an actor's complete performance––their facial expressions, how they talk, when they blink––are captured for use in a video game. We spoke to Brendan McNamara, the head of the team behind the detective game using this tech, 'L.A. Noire.' ...

Made by Team Bondi and Rockstar––the AAA developer behind the violent and cinematic Grand Theft Auto series––L.A. Noire is set in post–WWII Los Angeles, giving the player the role of Cole Phelps (Mad Men's Aaron Staton), a war–hero turned police detective."

(Kevin Ohannessian, Fast Company, 4 February 2011)

The Choreography of Awkward and Dehumanised Spaces

"The seven characters in the film 'Dictio pii' (2001) move about in a vacant hotel, but the viewer cannot discern a specific intention that might motivate their peculiar conventicle. Doors swing open and oddly clad figures step forward, only to disappear again in the next room."
(Siemens AG 2006)

Markus Schinwald (2001) 'Dictio pii', single–screen projection with five 35mm films transferred to DVD, duration, each: 3 minutes 16 sec overall display dimensions variable installation.
