Cortextual Voyager 3000

2017

In collaboration with Jeffrey Yip, Tina Kashiwagi and Macro Waves :

Cortextual Voygaer 3000, is a geodesic healing dome centered around connecting with our subconscious mind. This interactive installation follows a narrative held in a distant utopian future where humans have reached a higher state of consciousness through meditation. Performance is then utilized as a vehicle for storytelling.  Participants are welcomed by "subconscious guides"  from the future to help viewers heal from the trauma of today's society.  

By using biofeedback apparatuses, data is generated from the participants causing the space to react with light and sound. The participants are encouraged to calm themselves through meditation, and when the biosensors detect the ideal state for tranquility, the space itself becomes tranquil with the aid of light and binaural beats.

 Heart rate sensor healing apparatus controls the speed of the binaural beats used in the Cortexutal Voyager's mediation practice. Binaural beats help focus the brain, bringing out the theta waves. Binaural beats can naturally move your brain to a calmer, lower frequency.

  The Brain Device also known as EEG (ElectroEncephalography) apparatus collects data from your brain, creating a visual translation of your brain waves ultimately controlling the visualization of the dome. The Cortextual Voyager provides a live reflection of your brain waves in order to help control your thoughts during the mediation process.

 The Cortextual helmet is useful in noisy environments. The audio contraptions lower the overall decibel rate of background noise, while creating a white noise effect, thus helping one relax for mediation.
