Databases of spontaneous multimodal expressions of affective states occurring during a task are few. This paper presents a protocol for eliciting stress in a public speaking task. Behaviors of 19 participants were recorded via a multimodal setup including speech, video of the facial expressions and body movements, balance via a force plate, and(More)
With the rapid developments of medical imaging, our personal inner body can be unveiled as never before. Medical images are usually considered as ordinary objects and their potential intimate value is never really considered. In this paper, we present an exploratory installation which anticipates prospective issues when medical and self-images interfere(More)
Virtual sport coaches guide users through their physical activity and provide motivational support. Users’ motivation can rapidly decay if the movements of the virtual coach are too stereotyped. Kinematic patterns generated while performing a predefined fitness movement can elicit and help to prolong users’ interaction and interest in training.(More)
Recent technologies enable the exploitation of full body expressions in applications such as interactive arts but are still limited in terms of dyadic subtle interaction patterns. Our project aims at full body expressive interactions between a user and an autonomous virtual agent. The currently available databases do not contain full body expressivity and(More)
The creation of interactive installations is a process which implies to bring back together phenomenological evaluations of visitors' experiences and motion analyses which inherently highlight the core material of interaction design. In this paper, we present an interactive and immersive work, See me through you, which ambition to provide a rich experience(More)
Postural control is a dynamical process that has been extensively studied in motor control research. Recent experimental work shows a direct impact of affects on human balance. However, few studies on the automatic recognition of affects in full body expressions consider balance variables such as center of gravity displacements. Force plates enable the(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the impact of four mood conditions (control, positive, negative, aroused) on movement expressivity during a fitness task. Motion capture data from twenty individuals were recorded as they performed a predefined motion sequence. Moods were elicited using task-specific scenarii to keep a valid context. Movement(More)
