Performance of Perception
Marcello Lussana et al.
‘Performance of Perception’ is both performance and research on human perception. The object of the research was how the perception of movement is influenced by interactive technologies and how it can be carried out. The concept originated within the context of two large-scale projects, which Marcello Lussana was and still is directly involved with: Motioncomposer and Metabody.
