International Week workshop: "Mind Over Matter"

Chris Hales will again be here in April to give two workshops. His International Week workshop will be "Mind Over Matter"

This short creative workshop (3 days) will enable a small group of participants to work with EEG signals coming directly from the human brain, using the Neurosky Mindwave device connected to a Mac or PC computer:

The group will analyse and test the capabilities of the Mindwave in order to design and produce an interactive audiovisual installation which will give different experiences to visitors to the installation, depending on their mental states. The installation would involve manipulating both projected audiovisual imagery and moving real-life objects with the Mindwave. In this respect the workshop is suitable for those interested in sculpture, electronics, interactivity, new media, narrative, and videomaking.

The group will work together on different aspects of the making of the installation and will present the piece to the public during an "open" session.

Times: April 23-25 mornings
Maximum 6 participants
The registration for International Week workshops will start April 2nd!
