观众头戴脑机接口(BCI),它将捕捉来自观众视觉皮层的脑波信号(Brain wave),使得眼睛的睁开和闭合成为切换感知模式的开关。

闭眼将点亮近在咫尺的灯泡,光的穿透力使我们依然感受它的存在,却无法清晰辨识,在我们脱离视觉的同时,我们将更全面的感受周围,感知模式的切换带领我们进入冥想状态。光似乎是来自你的内部世界,和自身形成一种共鸣,随着闭眼的持续,光将越来越亮;直到我们睁开眼睛,灯泡将渐渐熄灭,同时我们也逐步回到现实。

Audience are required to wear BCI, which captures brain wave from visual cortex, turning opening and closure of eyes as a perception mode switch.

Closing eyes light the bulb within a short distance. The light permeates, and we can still sense it with eyes closed. Though we cannot identify it with a clear visual image, the absence of visual senses allow us to perceive the surroundings even more thoroughly. This switch in perception mode takes us to a moment of meditation.

You feel as if the light came from within your body and resonated with yourself. The longer you close your eyes, the brighter the light becomes. The bulb will not switch off until we open our eyes, while bringing us back to the reality.

“脑电站”神经工程媒体艺术项目的系列作品受邀参加美国硅谷 2012 ZERO1 新媒体双年展。届时,将展出该项目系列作品的最新版本。

时间:9月12日至12月8日
地点:美国硅谷

September 12 – December 8, 2012
Opening: September 12-16, 2012

Exploring the theme “Seeking Silicon Valley,” the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial, with partners, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Berkeley Art Museum, UC Berkeley’s Center for New Media, and Stanford’s Center for Creativity and the Arts.

Under the thematic Seeking Silicon Valley, the 2012 ZERO1 Biennial proposes that contemporary art practice can re-imagine the idea, the place, and the experience of Silicon Valley. However, the ZERO1 Biennial is not only about the geographical region of Silicon Valley; it’s about investigating how the process of seeking can create a platform for creativity and experimentation centered in Silicon Valley while inviting contributions from around the world.

ZERO1’s Biennial exhibition, also titled Seeking Silicon Valley, will remain on display at the ZERO1 Garage from September 12 – December 8, 2012 and will serve as the network hub for all Biennial programming. The exhibition features the work of 24 artists representing 11 different countires.

Reflecting the networked nature of Silicon Valley, the exhibition structure experiments with a networked model of collaborative curation. The curatorial team includes Jaime Austin (ZERO1’s Curator and Director of Programs) as Lead Curator, and exhibition co-curators Dooeun Choi (South Korea), Gisela Domschke (Brazil), Michelle Kasprzak (Canada/the Netherlands), and Regina Möller (Germany).

TTTT 跨文化趋势 | 跨媒介转换 – 国际媒体艺术研究会议系列 Transcultural Tendencies | Transmedial Transactions

8月26日,吴珏辉参加由英国普利茅斯大学国际媒体艺术博士研究联盟和上海复旦视觉艺术学院联合举办的“跨文化趋势 | 跨媒介转换 -国际媒体艺术研究会议系列”,演讲主题是“肉媒体”。这是一个马拉松式的研讨会,两天中三个会场平行开会,每天上午下午的时间表排得满满的。各路跨界人马云集上海,信息密度有点让人窒息!

http://tttt.artlinkart.com/cn/

主题
跨文化趋势 | 跨媒介转换
新媒体艺术在全球范围内的推广将来自新老社会,古代或当下的哲学思想,传统与新兴科技的各类理论实践融合在一起,形成新的交点与结构。这其中包含着处于转形之中的对于区域与存在,私人性与社会性,人脑意识与机器的注解。在感性与体制的相交界面,一切固体均化为空气中的虚无… …这些课题构成了将前来上海复旦视觉艺术学院参加“意识重构”研讨会的艺术家,学者,科学家和工程师的主要背景。
研讨会由上海复旦视觉艺术学院新媒体艺术学院副院长胡介鸣先生与英国普利茅斯大学国际媒体艺术博士研究联盟院长罗伊·阿斯科特(Roy Ascott)先生共同主持。

我们探索“脑能”在新媒体艺术中的基因排列,架设个体、群体、生命体、非生命体间的“情感接口”,尝试身体─脑─媒体之间的游戏规则,最终呈现为“脑电站”系列作品。
生物的潜意识流只能在脑的黑匣子里封闭涌动?我们尝试“点燃”脑,使意识的微弱波动增幅并赤裸呈现 。
在 前沿脑机接口(Brain-Computer Interface)的链接下,个体生物能转化为光电能, 头脑被异化为灯泡,成为可见光辐射源。受抽象声波干扰个体情绪后,脑机接口捕捉脑部意识的反馈,最后映射到灯泡的明暗变化。随着情绪波动而变幻的光,也在 个体周围结成辐射性的情绪力场,由此完成输入与输出、感性与理性之间的能量的链式反应。
该项目是TASML(清华大学艺术与科学中心媒体实验室)的试点项目之一,是艺术家与科学家的一次头脑对接。在此,脑机接口不但是一种物理接口,更是一种跨领域的意识接口。

We explore the possibility of using“brain power” in new media art by constructing “emotional interfaces” between the individual and the group, the organism and the non-organism, in experimentation of a game among body — brain — media.
Is the subconsciousness of the living organism only confined to spaces of the mind’s black box? We attemp to ignite the mind, by amplifying the weak brainwaves and translating them into real-world events.
On the basis of the cutting-edge Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology, the biological energy (the electrical activities of the brain) is transformed to a photovoltaic energy: the brain activity is expressed by a light bulb, an emitting source of visible light. When the individual’s moods are affected by abstract sound waves, the BCI captures the reactions of the mind, and projects the brain activity to a light bulb. The light intensity of the bulb changes in accordance to the individual’s mood, forming an emotional force field surrounding the individual, further impacting upon his/her mood. In this process, a chain reaction of energy transfer between input and output, sensibility and sense is established.
“Brain Station” is not only one of TASML’s (Tsinghua Art & Science Media Laboratory) pilot projects, but also an interface between artists and scientists. Here, the brain-computer interface is beyond a physical interface: it is an interface of consciousness between different disciplines.

USB器官 @延展生命 USB Organs @Translife 2011

USB器官 USB Organs
2009-2011

Medium:
头盔、头戴式显示器、USB摄像头、USB麦克风、计算机、程序
Helmet, HMD, USB Camera, USB Mic, Computer, Program

一个器官蜕化成USB接口的人,通过外接摄像头、麦克风、扬声器等“USB器官”(USB Organs) 来体验某种存在感。未来的人们或许不再需要肉身,至少器官可以被替换。我们更乐于接受各种“USB器官”的信号,而日渐感受到生理器官的局限。或许,我们最终期盼的是让自己成为一个USB Hub,即插即用。

“延时器官”是USB器官系列作品之一,头盔内嵌一副HMD(头戴式显示器)和一个麦克风,同时外接一个USB摄像头和一个USB麦克风,通过设定延时长度,来决定感官世界与客观世界的时差──身处现在与过去两个时间流,体验由延时导致的时空错位感。作品向观众开放,现场观众可以穿戴该设备自行体验。

A person whose organs have evolved into USB sockets is connected to cameras, microphones and speakers as his sensory substitutes to feel his existence. A future human being may not need a corporal body, at least his / her organs can be exchanged with electronic devices. We anticipate our body as a universal plug / sockets that can be utilized at any moment and at any place.

The audience wears a helmet that is equipped with a head mounted display and a earphone. A USB camera and USB microphone are also connected to the helmet, which function as tentacles to sense the external world. The audience experiences temporal and spatial dislocation via a preconfigured duration of time-lapse which determines the time difference caused by the two time streams: time obtained through the audio-visual senses within the helmet and the time projected from outside the helmet.
