Laura Skocek - sentient (being) | 2010 | Installation art

Duration: 05.08.2010 - 25.09.2010, 10am - 10pm
Event: 23.09.2010, 7pm
 

We live in the age of the quantified self. Physiological data is recorded over periods of time, and its evaluation and interpretation is carried out with the help of machines.

Electroencephalography and imaging methods are used to measure patterns in brain activity during cognitive processes or affective states. Bionic limbs, deemed Science Fiction not so long ago, can be manoeuvred via EEG-based technology.

The translation of thoughts into the physical world seems to be within reach. So how does an object behave that is being fed with data derived from the result of brain activity measurement? Knitted tubes in combination with modular parts made of steel wire shape an irregularly textured, dynamic body that is adapted to the Showcase.

The motion dynamics are algorithmically arranged impulses, derived from measurements of a physiological rhythm. Laura Skocek went to a sleep lab in order to identify her cognitive fingerprint during the phase between sleep and wakefulness.
