Towards a Performative Body Mapping Approach


This paper presents a proposal for a creative robotics approach to human-robot interaction. The ‘Performative Body Mapping’ method exploits the expertise of artists and performers to imagining novel robot morphologies and movements. The proposed approach describes a mapping method between human and robot bodies, which supports the learning of socially meaningful interactions through imitation.
