Artist statement

“Movement in Void” is my artistic investigation of the brain wave sensing technology, a reflection of my personal yoga, meditation practices, and a tribute to Nam June Paik’s famous artwork – TV Buddha. Through this artwork, I extend the popular notion of embodiment in interactive art, by abandoning all gestural interactions and resorting to pure mental, and meditative activities. The interactive installation engages the participants in constant awareness of their mental activities and which may echo the mindfulness practices in Buddhism. The work also accumulates the brain wave data of all visitors to generate the collective patterns that manifest through the mechanical movement of the reactive environment.

《空•動》這作品探索腦波素描科技,融合瑜伽冥想修行的藝術應用。同時向白南准的《電視佛陀》致敬。透過這作品,我嘗試拋開互動藝術慣用的體感互動模式,而單純用意念來運作。這感覺跟佛家的正念修習有點相似。我亦會蒐集各觀眾腦波數據,用作品的裝置呈現集體意念的模様。
