Interfacingthoughts examines the relationship between people when technology becomes an intermediary for our communication. In a performative installation work brain activity is translated into interactive sound and cymatics. A performers state of mind and thinking portrays itself in a space that evolves by its own thinking every second.
With technology we can dissolve the limitations of our own sensory apparatus, we can sense something we otherwise could not by using technology to mediate. Interfacingthoughts provides with the technology access to a world that is otherwise hidden, revealing a person's mysterious inner state of mind in a sensuous and expressive experience. With the body's suggestive actions as a guide the audience and performer will experience their own attempt to decode meaning from the room's surroundings.
