We accumulate thus experiences and enriche our abilities. Our body is transformed, allowing us to express ourselves, communicate and interact more between us and with our environment. New technologies contribute to a deeper understanding of this interaction, through motion capture, gesture modeling, machine learning and analysis artistic but also of technical gestures. This event aims to bring together gesture professionals, scientists, artists, ergonomists, etc., to discuss the potential of synergies between art and industry. The goal is to identify the new uses of motion capture and “embodiment” in creative and industrial processes. During the think-tank perspectives and suggestions for long-term research around the human gesture will defined. A collegial reasoning will be drafted on the basis of the exchanges realised.
