TRANSCRANIAL (2014-2015-…)
Scientists use electromagnetic pulses to create glitches on brain activity by altering neuronal currents. Such glitches may cause temporary failures that can be represented by disassembling the body. As if this would be malfunctioning or out of control. Mind expression through body and body expression through mind.
Transcranial explores these expressions of mind and body in an interactive performance where technology and human being
play the embodied mind.
