The A.I dance choreographer
We have used machine learning to create images and literary art.
I wanted to explore how it would interpret another artform, such as dancing. Specifically asking "where does inspiration for movement, while dancing, come from?". Is it words, objects, surroundings, music, feelings, styles, body parts, people?
I let GPT-3, a language model, choreograph sequences from inspirational words. The instructions would later be displayed using P5js, together with a motion tracking script, where a person would interpret the words in movements that is being recorded in order to create a stand alone visual representation.
After the project I reflected on:
• Human vs machine-learning-generated moves
• How does the chosen media effect the outcome? Sound instead of words would have changed the experience.
• The aesthetics of the project almost did override the intended experience.
• Can you even describe inspiration in words?
