Allotopes: Place, Moment & Thought (Explorations in Neuro-Architectures)

Sep 18, 2014

Allotopes are a series of six black and white drawings with an accompanying soundscape. The intention is to experience these two modalities together, hearing the drawings and seeing the sounds. The work is generated as a specific frozen moment chosen from a dynamical system by six friends. One at a time each person was asked to wear a wireless EEG headset, which samples the electrical action potential of his or her brain waves. Their mental modulations are analyzed using real-time DSP and turned into a real-time visual geometrical landscape and soundscape.
