MFF 2010: Unstable Empathy

1 Octobre - 3 Octobre 2010
MFF 2010: Unstable Empathy
Installation de Mattia Casalegno

Pour le Media Facades Festival, Mattia Casalegno (IT/US) présente une  installation interactive reliant les participants au moyen de casques électroencéphalogrammes (Emotiv EPOC). Reliés par un dispositif relationel, leur confrontation intime est retransmise en temps réel dans une projection miroir.  Initiallement conçue pour façade média, la première version de cette installation sera présentée en intérieur.

"Unstable Emphaty" is an intimate environment re-mediated in real-time by the mind activity of two players who are constantly forced to negotiate their emphatic state. It is a collaborative experience in which the meanings of cooperation, entangling and collective consciousness are directly perceived on the physiological level.

At each session, EEG headsets are being mounted on the heads of two participants which will be positioned in front of each other in complete darkness. Their respective brain activities are the only means by which they can reach the other and its image, while rendering visible and audible un/revealing strategies that are part of their inner self.

En collaboration avec Enzo Varriale (LanVideosource).
