The usage of vegetative bodyfunctions for creating & altering a audio-visual set up

Together with local artists from Lisboa we were investigating the consequences of several body function of testpersons, used as manipulation and creation tools along imagine & sound changes, which again got presented to our subject.

We measured the brainwave activities, as well as the pulse rate, the breath frequency, the skin response or the muscle resistancy. This data got midi-transfered to trigger certain changes in several real time image & sound applications, which visualized or sonified output again gets fed back into the perception field of the subject and again (might) change some parameters in their body function (raise a pulse rate, lower a skin response, activates other ranges of brainwaves).
