Emological Symphony

2013



An Emological Symphony (2013) is a performative installation, that is joining human and technological organs. The outcome of this hybrid action is a bio- musical score coming to life on stage. The performers heart rate, breathing scale, and temperature are being measured through sensors; the data is the parameter for the sound track. The performer is influencing the music, and influenced by it - an interplay between actor and reactor. The work regards current topics such as (over-) usage of technology, politics of privacy in the internet, and the changes of culture.
