Artist Manipulates 48 Pools Of Water With Her Mind


Brain power takes on a literal significance when it involves EEG painting, head- furniture that is receptive, and the work of Lisa Park. Park joins EEG scan with pools and loudspeakers of water to visualize emotions and her ideas. A year ago, she exposed her brain designs to the world with Eunoia, where she set five water-filled alloy plates atop loudspeakers designed to react to her realtime brain information. For the reason that job, the information was sorted by Park into five emotionssadness, one per plate, rage, desire, happiness, and hate. But the latest iteration of the job takes the experiment to the next degree:

Eunoia II is outfitted with 48 shaking pools, inspired by the 48 emotions philosopher Baruch Spinoza summarized in his novel, Ethica, like frustration, exhilaration, battle, and meditation. Each loudspeaker vibrates according to Parks brain wave-interpreting algorithm, which transforms signals that are extreme from Parks Emotiv EEG headset into extreme vibrations in the pools of water. Here, Park is literally placing her internal fights on display, and the whole show depends on how she copes with her feelings.

Since I challenged how can I allow it to be observable and require this undetectable energy and emotions, I began working with biosensors particularly EEG headset? The Creators Job was told by Park. When I will be feeling certain emotions (anger, depression, happiness), in my opinion that whats inside me, more than 60% of water in body, will create vibrations/energy within myself. I needed to create an art that represents the interior part of myself.

Eunoia II metaphorically gives Parks internal self faculty and visibility, continuing the investigation she started in her first Eunoia performance, tenfold.
