Subtle Body Project
Masters Thesis Project for the Interactive New Media Program @ CSU East Bay
The Subtle Body Project is an interactive multimedia installation using the human bodies electromagnetic energy to generate and control an audiovisual composition in three movements. The energy gathered from the body will be in the form of EEG (brainwaves), EOG (muscle movement), and GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) and will be collected via biosensors attached to the head, forehead and fingers of the user. The data collected will then be processed by the software applications MAX/MSP, Ableton Live and Jitter and presented to the user and audience as generative audio and visual feedback in a state of the art theatrical setting. This project seeks to explore and integrate the convergence of disparate disciplines including interactive media, neuroscience, physical computing, biofeedback research, sound design, and video art.
