Characterizing Finger Pitch and Roll Orientation During Atomic Touch Actions

Alix Goguey, Géry Casiez, Daniel Vogel, Carl Gutwin
2018 Proceedings of the 2018 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '18  
We carried out a study to gather baseline data about finger pitch and roll orientation during atomic touch input actions.  ...  Our results show differences in orientation and range for different fingers, hands, and actions, and we analyse the effect of tablet angle.  ...  To provide this baseline information, we developed tools to test and analyse finger orientation, and carried out a study where we recorded orientation data as people performed atomic touch actions (single-finger  ...

Colors Like Knives: Embodied Research and Phenomenotechnique in Rite of the Butcher

Ben Spatz
2017 Contemporary Theatre Review  
During First Song Cycle, 'oh pa say' had been linked to a line of actions that developed over six or seven minutes, through several stages, including: an initial invocation, touching and being touched  ...  The arms and spine are fully engaged and the action can grow to include rolls across the floor (Image 4) as well as standing movement.  ...  The voice in this sense cuts not only into the time and space of performance and into audience perception but also into an epistemic field constituted by the relative reliability of human embodiment.  ...
