all of the "motion tracking" technology works by measuring the change
in position of the body in question. the system is normalized. the
system is in flux. what is the change in measurement? that
measurement is then assigned a value. it is then translated to an
aesthetic idiom. the body is question will somehow influence and be
influenced by the feedback. primarily, the data that is generated is
just about where the body is spacially. nothing whatsoever about the
content or state of the body; although some might say that the change
in position of the body could reveal something of its contents.
