Audio visual performance project by João Beira involves a performer wearing an EEG brainwave reader who is meditating - the results distort the Kinect-captured presentation - video embedded below:
BIOMEDIATION is a sensor based audiovisual performance that digitizes the practice of meditation. Through the use of a EEG headset, the cognitive and emotional experience of the performer is translated dynamically to sound and video compositions. It connects the body to brain activity, merging the physical world with the psychic dimension. Collaboration between João Beira and Yago de Quay.
Installation by Robert Seidel features colourful projections onto hanging abstract paper sculptures - video embedded below:
Hand-drawn sketches were the starting point for the installation grapheme. They delineate the artist’s initial creative idea and serve as the basis for the films projected, as well as for the form of the projection sculpture itself. These sketches are translations of memories and associations, which the artist, like in a diary, has captured from the most varied places and stations of life.
… The organic projection sculpture frees the film from the dogmatic limitations of rectangular silver screens and monitors. These delicate, laser-cut tissues float in the architectural space, light spills over them, and they come to life before the viewers’ eyes.
This is a film I found at an estate sale on the south side of Chicago. It merely said “Chicago” and “Print 1” on the canister. I bought it because I was intrigued as to what might live inside.
Well, its hard to say exactly what this is. Its a film by the Chicago Board Of Education, produced sometime in the 1940s. I only know this because the narrator died in a horrible plane wreck around that time. Its hard to say the purpose of the film; it could be geared towards tourism or to entice companies to come to Chicago. This film could have just been used in the classroom. I’m not entirely sure.
The great thing about this film reel, is all the different views of the city they give. If you have any more info on this, I would love to know!
