Captured Transitions

Captured Transitions records traces of human movement on a digital canvas. Creative coding is used to observe mindfulness practice in the form of yoga.

The white lines represent the pose which the machine was trained to recognise while the black lines show the transition through to the second pose not taught to the machine. The abstract drawings vary between more delicate and subtle to bolder more obvious outcomes where a human body is easier to identify.

The abstract illustrations derive from the machine learning model’s struggle to ‘see’ complex yoga poses resulting in missed body parts. These delicate lines and minimalistic colour scheme expose the machine’s perception of yoga practice.
