Captured Motion

Captured Motion

“Captured Motion” examines processes of industrial automation that increasingly impact our working environments. It is a continuation of Anette Rose´s long-term project “Encyclopaedia of Manual Operations” (since 2006). Rose observes how manual work is replaced by machines, but also how hands explain machines with gestures. On display is a spatio-temporal montage of hitherto unexhibited videos which Rose filmed as an artist-in-residence at the Institute for Textile Technology and the Motion Capture Laboratory at the RWTH Aachen.

The exhibition’s title – “Captured Motion” – alludes to the artistic and scientific procedures by means of which mechanical and physical movements can be visually, acoustically and haptically “captured’. In a kaleidoscopic manner, the installation brings together various perspectives and movement notations. It includes videos showing movements of complex textile machinery, for instance a radial braiding machine, as well as motion captures of engineers describing these machines gesturally. The lines of the gestures correlate with the threads that form a kind of leitmotif of the installation. A network of expressive movements establishes volatile sculptures, while machines run threads, knit, enmesh, cross, weave and intertwine.
