Gesture, Energy, Critique Robert Longo and Boris Charmatz Lucia Ruprecht If this volume inquires into the potential of energetic forces to become aes- thetic interventions, my contribution is based on an understanding of ges- ture as an aesthetic intervention into energetic force. This understanding is informed by a modernist perspective, which links gesture to the rhythm of intermittency. Within the modernist framework, gestures are energetic phenomena in as much as they are defined by a dialectic between movement and stillness, between kinetic energy and

Analysis II: A Performance Aesthetic Study on Stylized Gestural Articulation 6. ON GESTURES AND STYLIZATION 6.1 Body Posture and Gestures in Hula ‘Ōlapa Performance Practice Body motion is one of the most prominent forms of articulation in hula ‘ōlapa performance and therefore a means of artistic expression. In order to talk about body motion in hula ‘ōlapa I distinguish between three broad areas: 1) basic body posture, 2) stylized-abstract gestures, and 3) stylized-alluding gestures. Among stylized-abstract and stylized-alluding gestures I

Gesture Capture: Paradigms in Interactive Music/ Dance Systems FRÉDÉRIC BEVILACQUA, NORBERT SCHNELL, SARAH FDILI ALAOUI INTRODUCTION Electronic or digital interactive systems have been experimented with in dance for more than fifty years. The piece Variations V by Merce Cunningham and John Cage, performed in 1965 with dancers interacting with analog electronic sound systems, is one such groundbreaking case (cf. Miller 2001). The use of in- teractive digital technology grew in importance in the 1990s with the advent of affordable sensor

211 Jennifer M. Barker A Surrealist Turn: Transformative Gestures in THE BIRDS In her BFI Classic on Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds (1963), Camille Paglia claims that what drew Hitchcock’s eye to Tippi Hedren ini- tially was the way she walked across the studio set in a commercial for a diet drink (Paglia 1998: 13). I, too, am entranced by the way Tippi Hedren moves, model-like in its precision. This essay turns precisely on that aspect of Hedren’s performance, in order to bring together two familiar strains of conversation about Hitchcock: on one hand, his

277 AM OS HE T Z Listening to the Gesture. The Gap between the Spontaneous and the Formed Observing dance is an experience with many gaps. Am I able to put it in words, can I listen to the precious gaps in-between? The Chinese book The Secret of the Golden Flower is a description of the quest for inner wisdom. To help the seeker, the writer illustrates the nature of the quest with an image: one should listen to oneself like a hen brooding her eggs – unable to stand up, able only to hear and feel when the chicks are hatching. I have called

employed in Tinder and particularly the ‘swipe to unlock’ gesture used in the Android operating system. Finally, the previous findings are contextualised by briefly investigating the cultural imaginary of the touchscreen, which manifests itself in the form of haptic feedback as well as curved and even wearable touch-sensitive surfaces. Introduction: Touchscreens between hardware and software Since the release of the Nintendo DS (2004) and especially the first-generation iPhone (2007), touchscreen interfaces have become almost omnipresent (cf. e.g. Verhoeff and
