Aura: A holographic brainwave interface at V&A Digital Futures
Authors: Gingrich, O., Renaud, A. and Emets, E.
Start date: 9 July 2018
Aura investigates the relationship between spirituality and technology. When Roy Ascott asked whether there is love in the telematic embrace (Ascott 1989), he questioned technology’s role in empathy. Aura presents a holographic brainwave interface that represents brainwave activity on a Pepper's ghost screen device in real-time. The artefact provides the audience with a live representation on their personal engagement with the art piece.
