Rock Paper Scissors

“Rock beats Scissors, Scissors beats Paper, Paper beats Rock

Two computers playing rock-paper-scissors. Each has its own random algorithm running, choosing one of the three possible items. Connected by an ethernet cable, each computer plays its hand — the winning pc gets a point.” 

digital art meets dance: Kagemu, Paris 2011

Just found this artistic duo: artist Nobuyuki Hanabusa and dancer Katsumi Sakakura, or Kagemu. This video shows (a part of, I guess) their show Black Sun, where they combine motion graphics and modern dance, inspired by Japanese martial arts. The video begins with Sakakura interacting with abstract digital figures, breaking digitally the wall / screen behind him and fighting with his own shadow, all with energetic and strong music. Enjoy (or for more videos, check on YouTube).

For more works by Hanabusa (and Kagemu) you can visit Hanabusa’s website hana-busa.jp (mainly in Japanese).
