PROJECTS

NEURAL PARADISES

 

Ad portas of a new era of interconnectedness and collective Brain-Computer Interfaces, are we prepared for a socialization of the brain activity?

Are we ready to embark on a new level of empathy through consent immersion into the mind of others, in their thoughts and feelings?

NEURAL PARADISES explores the phenomena of brain synchronization under different proposed circumstances: A plausible future scenario is the stage for this simulation.

 

Our interface integrates audio-visualization of brain activity, input from body movement (dance) and an experiential neural closed-loop (a circuit of neuroinfluence and brainwaves feedback).

The performers and participators (spectators and participants at the same time) collaborate with their brain activity into neural virtualities, through the use of multiple wireless headbands of electroencephalography.

In a kind of interface presentation, we introduce the present and future of Brain-Computer interfaces and artificial intelligences.

 

 

 

NEURAL PARADISES was premiered at the EDGE art and neuroscience exhibition 2020, a virtual event replacing the  programme planned originally at Alte Münze Berlin.

NAKED BRAINS

 

It‘s possible to visualize our brain activity during arousal?

 

Arousal typically happens when the body releases chemicals into the brain that act to stimulate emotions, reduce conscious control, and create physical agitation and 'readiness for action.’ Recent developments in neuroscience and new sensing technologies make it possible and easy to examine our brain activity, even at home.

 

Innative Lab use a brain-computer interface to show how our brains react to excitement:

The cocktail of hormones and neurotransmitters during arousal is brought to audio-visuals using a wireless electroencephalogram device. An anonymous test person -female individual- stimulates herself to wake up excitement and emotions that are revealed in real time with 3D animations on the screen.

 

 

 

NAKED BRAINS participate in the exhibition Contemporary Love, as part of the Festival 48 Stunden Neukoelln - 2020

In the project 'Contemporary Love' 4 artists explore the topic of love during the Corona crisis. How, in a city apartment, do you create your own worlds to retreat into? What are the limits and possibilities of representing oneself through digital data? What does a greatly reduced physical co-presence mean for our emotional sphere and sexuality?

DEEP WAVES

 

DEEP WAVES is a multi-disciplinary performance that combines the physical and digital into an immersive experience. DEEP WAVES adapts ancestral rituals with today’s technology to explore primal ways of connecting.

 

Using a neurosensing headband developed by Berlin tech start-up, Neurofox, one of the performer’s brainwaves are transformed into visuals, while the other’s movements are sonified through a motion tracking device embedded in the costume. Hence, the performers create the audiovisual landscape of the performance in real-time, making the invisible waves around us, visible.

 

DEEP WAVES took the “doble yo” (The Double Me) concept from the pre-Columbian San Agustin culture as its standpoint. Depicted as the figure of a naked standing warrior with the head of a jaguar on top of him, it symbolises the magical power of the shaman. This creature embodies duality: Male and Female, Matter and Spirit, Rational and Instinctive, Universal and Native. This sense of dichotomy fuels the piece.

 

 

 

Although the digital era only appeared at the last second in the day of human evolution, DEEP WAVES uses these new tools to reflect on how important it is to create new rituals to reach, once again, that state when Mankind’s connection with nature was more tangible, its intuition better developed and its culture gave more emphasis to human interaction.

 

In this day and age of global warming, ecological catastrophes and cultural genocides, dystopian fears seem like visions of times to come, leaving Man as the sole prospect for the planet’s recovery, which is why it is ever so pressing for us to achieve such primordial ways of connecting.
