EVALUATION ON PERFORMER SUPPORT METHODS FOR INTERACTIVE PERFORMANCES USING PROJECTOR
Keywords:interactive performance, projector, media art
Recently, performances that combine performers’ actions and images projected from a projector have attracted a great deal of attention. In such performances, since the per- former usually faces the audience, it is difficult for him/her to watch the projected images on a background screen. This means that he/she cannot make the performances dynamic in response to changes in the situation. Therefore, we evaluate multiple information pre- sentation methods for interactive performances. We have developed a prototype system for supporting performers and evaluated its effectiveness. We confirmed that differences in display devices and in the types of presenting images affected the quality of perfor- mances. The implemented prototype was actually used in several stage performances, and we confirmed that the system was effective and improved the visibility of projected images.
