DanzArte teaches us to see a work of art through to non-verbal communication, sound and dance gestures. It is a culture and health technological innovation project, an interactive system of artificial intelligence, technology and emotional well-being.
Small groups are invited to emulate the affective movement evoked in a painting, while an artificial intelligence system measures in real time the emotional cues of the body movement, in order to use them in a visual manipulation of the painting and to sonify the emotion contained in the movement.
The project is designed for the physical and cognitive treatment of the elderly and frail. The affective gestures evoked in the painting and the interactive sonification are stimuli for cognitive and physical reactivation.
DanzArte is a project of Casa Paganini - InfoMus. Founded in 1984, it carries out scientific and technological research, development of multimedia systems and applications.
Its research focuses on the understanding and development of computational models of non-verbal expression, crossing humanistic, scientific and artistic theories.
