At the juncture of technology and art we find ourselves looking into a mirror of our mind’s eye. In this work, the artist brings the observer into the work, not as creator or subject, but as the medium itself.
The user listens to alpha, beta and theta wave embedded music to influence their attentive and meditative states. The real-time drawings produced by RedGreenBrain are the result of one’s brain wave patterns, moved by a sub-conscious neural response to music.
RedGreenBrain: See Into My Musical Mind debuted on Saturday, April 2nd, 2011 at SOMArts, San Francisco, CA as part of at CCRMA’s Modulations Concert.
More photos of the Modulations event are available on the Stanford Lively Art’s flickr stream.
