Mattia Casalegno / Giovanni D'Aloia "Unstable Empathy" (2008)

Unstable Empathy from kinotek on Vimeo.

An Unstable Emphathy is a reactive environment constantly remediated in real-time by the mind activity of two players.

At the beginning of the game two participants are selected from the audience; then some electroencephalographic (EEG) electrodes are mounted on the head of two players. Their Alpha brainwave (8-10 cicles/second) is measured in amplitude in order to assess the mental state and the level of relaxation and concentration of the two participants, while the players’ brain activity is rendered in real time as visuals on the big screen behind them and as spatialized sounds surrounding the environment.
