EEG Improvisation (2016)

I attended a brainwave workshop with artist Luciana Haill where I created two improvisations. The first is a piece of music that I’m playing with my mind: taking the EEG readings and using them to trigger frequencies. The second is a video synthesizer that responds to EEG signals. Both were created in the workshop using my Fugio software.

Toy Hack Digital Metropolis

Phoenix Brighton received a Brighton Digital Festival Education Award to work with Alex May and Exploring Senses who created a two day workshop for thirty 13-19 year olds to hack toys, build a cardboard city for them to live in, create animations about them, and finally use Alex’s video mapping software to create a digital metropolis.

The workshop and final exhibition took place over the 18th and 19th of September 2015 in the main gallery of Phoenix Brighton.
