RHYTHM is a key element in describing the fluctuations of pressure and control in a fight. What might be a better option than using the BioBeat is using a gyroscope or accelerometer to measure the bouncing/ bounding of the players and their use of the space.
The changes in the rhythm can be denoted as decisions that are consciously made, and carried out sub-consciously.
This goes on to suggest the role of the “invisible side of the body” – where the involuntary actions start and where conscious actions and self-awareness take turns in being utilised during the performance.
Also, while reading up on communicating human qualities digitally, as part of my Paper research, I learnt that Susal Kozel noted “reducing human interaction to its simplest states:
Even though these states are not that simple to begin with, the idea of simplifying the interaction into 2 or 3 states could be the best way to interpret the data.
To help with this investigation, I will be using the video footage taken from the Australian Open Championships that took place in Melbourne last week to conduct qualitative interviews with athletes on their reflections of their thought processes during their fights.
