“Performative Experiments on Human Test Subjects” is an interactive performance installation that combines digital media with body interactions. As a durational work, it is a series of experimental live situations for one person at a time. During each session, the brain activity of the single audience member / test subject is measured and transformed into music in real time. The performer reacts to that brainwave music with her body. She also manipulates the one-person audience directly with different interactions. All these actions may have an effect on the audience member’s brain activity, and thus on the music. As a result, a neuro-musical biofeedback loop is created.
