Abstract

In this chapter, Luigi Pirandello’s, Shoot! (Si Gara!) The Notebooks of Serafino Gubbio (1926), is used to examine the intimate relationship of the operator to device. This intimacy, paralleled in the MoCap studio between system operator and performer, is a fundamental aspect of the PeCap scenario, and privileges the operator of the MoCap system in the successful generation of performance. Walter Benjamins The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction [Das Kunstwerk im Zeitalter seiner technischen Reproduzierbarkeit] (1936) supports Pirandello’s influence of the operator, framing the dilemma of what is actually captured in the act of recording performance as the capture and reproduction of aura.
