Book Description

A rigorous primer in movement studies for designers, engineers, and scientists that draws on the fields of dance and robotics.

This book is a much-needed primer for observing, describing, and creating a wide array of movement patterns, which ultimately can help facilitate broader and better design choices for roboticists, technologists, and designers.

About the Authors
  • Amy LaViers works at the intersection of robotics and dance.
  • Catherine (Cat) Maguire is a movement educator and dance artist. She has been teaching in the Laban/Bartenieff Movement System for over 40 years and works as a faculty member of WholeMovement, a coterie of movement analysts working together to promote movement studies globally.
