“CORPS À CORPS AVEC LA MODE” Miren Arzalluz, ”Cristóbal Balenciaga. Rethinking the body in the 20th century”

This paper aspires to explore the development of an alternative silhouette in Western fashion, throughout the 20th century, with particular attention to the unique and key contribution of couturier Cristobal Balenciaga. Since the eradication of the corset in the early 1900s, a new silhouette emerged characterized by an unprecedented looseness and freedom of movement, which gave way to a radically new relationship between body and garment, and ultimately to a process of progressive conceptual abstraction in fashion. One of the main representatives of this exceptional evolution was the couturier Cristóbal Balenciaga. In 1947, ironically the year of Dior’s corseted ...

Brain to Brain approaches to joint actions

Joint actions require an ability to understand and predict the actions of others far enough into the future to have time to plan and execute matching motor programs. Here I will review experiments in which we have tracked information flow from one brain to another to show that the motor system seems to play a key role in these functions. I will embed this experimental data in a Hebbian learning model, which posits that predictions are the result of synaptic plasticity during self­observation. Jointly this talk will aim to trigger thoughts on how we can ...

Improvising Interaction

Even the most tightly scripted solo performances involve improvisation; the detailed execution of each note or word cannot be completely determined in advance. In joint performances the challenge of co­ordinating the actions of multiple people in real­time becomes even more complex. One response to this challenge has involved appeal to prediction using ‘forward models’ from computational models of action planning. These models involve automatic activation of motor representations of the future perceptual consequences of an unfolding action. Although normally associated with action production, if a person perceiving the action can also produce a forward ...
