“Eunoia” is a performance that uses my brainwaves--collected via EEG sensor--to manipulate the motions of water.


The title “Eunoia” derives from the Greek word εὔνοια, meaning "beautiful thinking”. While growing up, I often wondered how to control the contents of my consciousness. Through this performance, I am exploring ownership of my emotions and my thoughts to truly understand my inner self.

EEG measures frequencies of brain activity (Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma, Theta) relating to my state of consciousness while I wear it. The data collected from EEG is translated in realtime to modulate vibrations of sound. The resulting sound waves vibrate pools of water in metal plates placed on top of speakers.
