Explore and examine the range of kinetics involved in Yoga, in order to integrate an ancient Indian science with cutting edge technology.
Nadi is a Digital display of Kinetics and Energetics of Body Movements involved in Yoga.
The visuals are created by investigating the flow of data, using the human body as a vehicle. With the support of computer vision technologies, a visual trail is formed by tracking the body movements during yogic postures.
Inspired from Indian Yogic Science, we have visually depicted aspects of light, matter and energy in our forms. The generative nature of the visual comes from the digital juxtaposition of the poses that the body generates with each pose.
Self Commissioned Project
By analysing and studying the artform of Yoga, we have developed a custom software solution that interprets body movements through the production of hidden patterns of flow (in various forms) from one posture to the next. This real-time projection was made possible with Computer Vision and Creative Coding.
This provides a new and adventurous innovation with regards to virtual wellness and fitness events. The result of body movements interacting with our software presents unique generative artworks in various forms - Linear trail, Particle trail, Photomask trail and more.
A unique solution for Fitness and Wellness space which aims at making use of Data to capture patterns and provide analytics with shareable visuals.
Nadi is an exploration of Body Kinetics in Surya Namaskar and the other asanas of the Yoga Discipline. We designed three different systems to communicate Light, Motion and Density. We used techniques like Image processing, Computer Vision, Depth Imaging and Software Art/ Generative Art
Using Machine learning and Computer Vision techniques, we made a custom software which primarily recognizes the individual doing Yoga, captures skeletal movements and create silhouettes. The software also features a dashboard of Movement Analytics like Posture Time, Count and Posture Detection which can further help the individual with his practice. It also comes with a unique visual data representation, which can be shared online or printed on a merchandise.
"The projections behind the person change to match their posture, that means each person gets a unique animation every time they are tracked. The visuals have three distinct types chosen to best match their emotion and intention of the poses. "
Also most recently the work is being used as a Social Campaign for creative co-existence during social distance.
These forms have an underlying rhythm and dynamics that we particularly wanted to capture. To further elaborate, we were interested in capturing the body forms in between the start and finish postures, and how the body segued with the breath.
Our concept was to humanise technology, make Data a storytelling medium, for the viewers to see their Data in a new light. With the aid of Computer graphics, we intended to gamify the data experience. By using procedural way of making objects in a three dimensional space, we aimed to captivate the person’s attention to a new form that he could pan, zoom or spin.
Our motion tracking tool has been able to provide consumers with a mindful and immersive experience like no other. Located at the intersection of new media, creative technology and the gamification of virtual participation; our Nadi Project aims to provide customer experiences that promote wellness, creativity and social belonging. By further developing such generative experiments and artistic visuals to suit the preferences of clients, Timeblur offers digital consulting solutions in order to capture the attention of new age consumers.
Nadi is being setup for futuristic immersive museum with multiple projectors and content which changes with body movement of the visitor.
