THEME LEADER Jane Davidson

SUPPORTED BY University of Melbourne, as part of the NGV Triennial – exploring the emerging intersections of art, design, science and society.

Matthew Delbridge works in motion capture, which is used in the animation and film industry to create movement and action for digital characters. His research includes actor training, motion capture, performance technologies, animation, theatre history, cultural heritage, scenography, technology studies and production processes. He is involved in developing the recording of movement and provides regular public commentary around acting in motion capture and visual effects in contemporary film. For Triennial Voices, Delbridge has shared four short films titled 30 seconds of waiting, Dancing Maker Set, Peggy 13 and Wrecking Ball RIP, and which record the movement of people and objects in various creative ways.
