Troisi, Anna (2015) Keen-Skin. [Art/Design Item]

Type of Research: Art/Design Item
Creators: Troisi, Anna

An installation based on haptic sensation and neurologic data. Keen-Skin consists in an immersive interactive installation that intends to create an augmented reality of human tactile senses. The installation will take place in a square almost dark room or in a gallery space. The room will be equipped by a coffee table, few chairs and a soft light table lamp. The environment should be very warm and the light soft (not daylight).

Two or more participants will wear EEG wireless system and data will be streamed and processed in order to create an intriguing environment in respect of the emotional state of the participants. Participants will be asked to touch each other (hand, face, neck, arms). The important aspect will be to create a “skin to skin” contact. The space will be shared by active and passive participants. The virtual environment will be created through sounds generated by the electroencephalography data gathered during the users interaction. The Neurological Data mapping is programmed in respecting the aesthetical idea of composition of a sound-environment made by human senses. The original software is programmed used Max/MSP over OSC-router and the sound will be spatialized through a quadraphonic high quality sound diffusion system.
