DESCRIPTION: THINKING OF YOU 2001 - PRESENT
Joined through telepresence, participants at separate physical locations see each other, and transmit brainwaves and other human factors through the Internet; the real-time convergence of this information flow creates a shared sensory enviroment for them, and for public particpants on the Web.
Thinking of You explores
the space between thought and experience in a cyber and physical installation
that draws upon the social nature of the brain's electrochemistry, as
it reveals a deeper understanding into our internal dialogue made visible.
"The difference between Thinking of You and other previous Brain Wave Drawings is that it occurs in remote locations, with an audio and visual representation of participants appearing as one collaborative image on the Web. Web Seance: Brainwave Drawings was close, with people being able to virtually participate, but the people who were connected to electroencephalographs were seeing their own output compared with one other person's, in audio and visual form including their heartbeats." Nina Sobell
from the electro-encephalograph's electrodes are conducted through any
computer to an essential server, summated with others from related remote
locations, and then utilized to orchestrate real-time sound and light
sculpture, which is the interactive dimension from the participants."
