‘True’ is the dance performance created as a part of the artists in residence program of YCAM with the use of myoelectric sensors, wave transducers, LEDs, and visuals. In this work, I developed the system of the myoelectric sensors and wave transducers from Tablemind. The table in this work looks simple, but is actually super high spec (or over spec) and is worth paying attention to while you watch the performance.
