Part of A Grand Exposition: Sci-Art
Verrfast is an experimental audio-visual installation that integrates a psychophysical system of neuro headsets and heart rate monitors to collect biometric data (EEG and ECG) from several participants.
This data is then used as triggers for the sonic and visual channels that are projected back into the performance space. Participants are able to affect the sounds and moving images using meditational techniques to control their biometric data.
The work explores how artist, artwork and audience can be part of a collaborative audio-visual performance, driven by biofeedback loops and generated through sensory immersion in the installation.
