This movement project is a collaboration between assistant professor Kevin Patton and artists Heidi Boisvert and Pauline Jennings. This piece derives its choreography from a series of workshops with survivors of trauma. Walking Wounded asks the question: how is trauma hidden in the body and how do our movement reflect that?
Using a custom body sensor that generates position and motion data in three dimensions, the sensor also reads muscle tension. Patton worked to sonify this data in real-time to reflect the traces that trauma has left.
