Jeannette’s practice based research and publications centre around affect, the moving body and its digital materiality. Her works have explored somatic memory and how the use of Augmented Reality and Screendance capture, amplify and share openness, porosity
and audience reception of affect and haptic memory. Her current research at London South Bank University questions if balance in movement produces affect, how this may be captured with bio sensors and digitally revisualised for both dancer and audiences. The
research may encourage explorations of mixed realities – an augmented reality pinned into a virtual reality for example.
