During the Orientation week I had a good opportunity to use the Software/Hardware developed at STEIM, and I was inspired by the whole experience to continue my research about the relationship between the human body and digital devices, how they can interact and communicate.
I am particularly interested in the use of bio-data in real time media. Until know I have experimented with two kinds of body interfaces: an EMG (electromyogram) interface and with an EEG (electroencephalogram) interface to obtain bio-data in order to create new forms of performance on the stage or new forms of relations between machine, body and space.
Following this research of interaction in between bio data and real time media (sound and video), I would like to explore the body- temperature and the GSR (galvanic skin response) sensors to create a new form of relation between machine and body.
As a result of this research, I would like to create an installation where the visitor’s skin and body temperature, will be measured. The values received will be transmitted to a computer and will be used to create the sound and the images that will be projected, making the visitor create his/her own environment.
I’m currently looking for information and researching about … and I hope that soon I will have a clearly idea about the instrument I would like to built.
