Moving Photon is a project by ReMAP member Friendred Peng and colleagues, aimed at exploring embodiment, social connection and remote presence during the age of pandemic. This work translates physiological data from live EEG recordings to an installation and explores embodied approaches in computational synergised space. More details about this work will be shared throughout the next couple of months.
Images on this page are taken from a week-long testing and rehearsal of this work-in-progress. During this week we have tested hyper-scanning looking at how two participants engage with the performance while subconsciously controlling the set. We used two EEG devices to scan participants brain wave including Alpha and SMR (sensorimotor rhythm) while they are watching the performance to control the installation in which the dancer was improvising to.
The exhibition will be held at the Ugly Duck in early Jan 2022. There will be scheduled installations and performances. Soon you will be able to come and experience this work both onsite and remotely so stay tuned!
