Eunoia (Lisa Park)

“Eunoia” is a performance that uses brainwaves -- collected via EEG sensor-- to manipulate the motions of water. It derives from the Greek word “ey” (well) + “nous” (mind) meaning “beautiful thinking”. EEG is a brainwave detecting sensor. It measures frequencies of the brain activity (Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma, Theta) relating to the state of consciousness while wearing it. The data collected from EEG is translated in realtime to modulate vibrations of sound with using software programs. EEG sends the information of the brain activity to Processing, which is linked with Max/MSP to receive data and generate sound from Reaktor.
