SonicNeurons~ (2008/2013)

SonicNeurons~ is part of a two-piece project that was created to review the effectiveness of language in interpersonal communication versus more direct and abstract methods. The EEG scan was taken while watching a video of people’s hands scratching, caressing, and hitting. The manner in which these human relationship-gestures were perceived and processed by the brain is the base of the abstract audio in the base of sn~. The output of the installation is reactive to human motion and encourages movement by communicating through a system based on the perception of movement.

The piece was presented in 2008 as part of the SVA MFACA degree show in NYC.

Sonicneurons~ was part of the exhibition Signal to Noise, Curated by Sarah Ellen Lundy as part of Clare Culture Night 2013 in Ennis, Ireland.

Collaboration with programmer Levent Cetiner.
