Dancing humanoids, robotic art installations, and music generated by mathematically precise methods are no longer science fiction; in fact they are the subject of this book. This first-of-its-kind anthology assembles technical research that makes such creations possible. In order to mechanize something as enigmatic and personal as dance, researchers must delve deeply into two distinct academic disciplines: control theory and art. Broadly, this research uses techniques from the world of art to inspire methods in control, enables artistic endeavours using advanced control theory and aids in the analysis of art using metrics devised by a systems theoretic approach.
To ensure that artistic influences are well represented, the individual chapters are focused so that they relate their contribution to the arts meaningfully and explicitly. Specially composed introductions set up the contributions either in terms of inspiration by artistic principles or their contribution to the arts through new analysis tools. To facilitate this, the majority of the chapters are authored jointly by experts in control theory and by artists, including dancers, choreographers, puppeteers and painters. Connections between controls and art then permeate the text so that these important relationships play a central role in the book.
Controls and Art surveys current projects in this area-including a disco dancing robot, a reactive museum exhibit and otherworldly music-and illuminates open problems and topics for research in this emerging interdisciplinary field. It will draw attention both from experts in robotics and control interested in developing the artistic side of their creations and from academics studying dance, theater, music and the visual arts with an interest in avant-garde means of production.Biografía del autor:
Amy LaViers is an Assistant Professor at the University of Virginia and the director of the Robotics, Automation, and Dance (RAD) Lab. She completed an undergraduate thesis at Princeton University and a doctoral dissertation at Georgia Inst. of Technology that straddle the world of art and control engineering. Her thesis at Princeton received top thesis prizes and her dissertation at Georgia Tech was accompanied by a contemporary dance show entitled "Automaton." She is the co-organizer of two Invited Sessions (the first of their kind) on Controls and Art at the American Control Conference. She received the ECE Graduate Teaching Excellence Award at Georgia Tech and the Calvin Dodd MacCracken Senior Thesis Prize, Morgan Mckenzie Senior Thesis Prize, and Lyman Page Dance Award at Princeton.
