Hana Pajala-Assefa is a Helsinki-based choreographer with an extensive history of interdisciplinary work sourcing from the body both as a practitioner and artistic researcher. In recent years she has focused on embodied experience in digital and virtual environments as an artist, programme curator, and producer, leading her towards media- and digital-art practices.
She is lead designer on the project Skeleton Conductor (SC), an interactive real time, movement-based extended reality (XR) experience with the objective to design an interactive digital interface displayed in HMD for musical and visual expression. The project aims to create an immersive, interactive art experience of the phenomenon of kinetic musicality and kinesonic composition, emphasizing users’ multi-sensorial presence and full immersion through motion-based interaction and inter-reflectivity in the virtual environment.
