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.

Participants in physical and cyberspace perceive of the intricacies of personal communication by interpretation and navigation of brain wave energies. They see each other, and one composite brain wave drawing they are creating together. By tracking the synchronicity of their brain waves, an internal and external portrait forms in this meditative space for the creative process of our collective consciousness to unfold. Brain wave patterns are identifiable by color and tone, morphing and evolving over time by the 'group mind' and interacted with each physical location as light and sound sculptures.

"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

"EEG outputs 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."
Dr. John Dubberstein, Neurosurgeon/ musician/ collaborator
