What is it?
The project was inspired by the experimental animation 'Citius, Altius, Fortius' created by Felix Deimann and created for an animation class. 'Riposte' is an exploration of movement and form through an abstracted representation of two fencers sparring.
What did I do?
I collaborated with Deborah Jung-Jin Lee to create the experience with the help of Nick Tackowiak - a fellow epee fencer - and Justin Macey, who runs a motion capture lab at Carnegie Mellon. ​​​​​​​

The gestures of two fencers was captured through the VICOM system, which Deborah and I later manipulated in Maya - a 3D modeling and animation software program
