Artist Statement:


    You are the Ocean, an interactive installation, generates ocean waves and clouds in response to brain waves of a participant. Water, light, clouds, and lightning are realistically simulated by computer code. A participant wears an EEG (Electroencephalography) headset that measures the user’s approximate attention and meditation levels via brain waves. Through relaxation and concentration, the subject can control the water and sky. Attention level affects storminess: With higher concentration, the waves get higher and the clouds thicken. By calming their mind, the subject can create a calm ocean.
