Opening Performance “Eunoia”
Location : Storage No. 5, Songshan Cultural and Creative Park
Time : 2014/11/14 20:00
“Eunoia” is an interactive installation, using electroencephalogram (EEG) technology to translate brainwaves into sound which vibrates pools of water and creates a real-time audiovisual representation of brain activity. The changes of volume, pitch, and speed of the sound are associated with his/her varying emotional states detected by the sensor.
The audio output is produced by five speakers, while each speaker corresponds to one of the five brainwave frequencies, in order to add a visual component to the performance. The water responds with different formations of ripples and droplets in unpredictable patterns, associated with a person’s feelings.
