A research passion project investigating the connection between gestures and speech.
Often neglected, hand gestures play a crucial role in face to face conversation, often reinforcing and strengthening it. However in certain circumstances [like for example the translation of speechs into transcripts] this valuable piece of information is lost completely. This project aims to understand, explain and create potential visual alternatives to showcasing a conversation's physical dialogue.
Shapes of Sounds Part 1: Video Interviews
I conducted a series of interviews with members of my course to produce a library of popular gestures. From that I produced a video aiming to highlight the amount of gestural dialogue that is lost when converted to just type.
