Artist Statement:


Alternity is a real-time immersive and interactive architectural installation driven by brain-waves. Data from a wireless Electroencephalography (EEG) headset is collected and analyzed looking for coherent and harmonic patterns. These patterns are mapped to parameters of generative geometry and sound and spatially visualized by projecting on and through an array of silver hyperbolic screens while being sonified spatially using Ambisonics on a multiple channel sound system. The user now exists in virtual and physical tandem, his/her current perspective and awareness creates an immersive experience whereby they are experiencing the dynamic geometric landscape which they are generating in real time.
