Lisa Park’s NUE

Music/sound design for live performance using brainwave data

Today's Art Festival 2015 (The Hague, The Netherlands) opened with a performance piece by Lisa Park. Park works with EEG brainwave headsets as a self-monitoring tool to measure her emotional response to the world around her.

‘NUE’, meaning silkworm in Korean, transforms the physical space of 4DSOUND as Lisa moves through the system wearing a 200-metre long white dress, weaving an intricate web of passages, pockets and walls. Confined within the web, the audience interacts with Lisa as she moves in the space, through whispering, looking, and touching. Driven by Lisa’s brainwaves, a soundworld unfolds that encompasses the audience in its unravelling structure. Sonic textures melt together or fall apart based on Lisa’s emotional state, being tense or calm, focused or distracted.

On Lisa Park

New York-based artist Lisa Park has developed a series of performances using biosensors (brainwave and heart-rate devices) as a vehicle for manifesting her inner states. Lisa’s recent works “Eunoia” and “Eunoia II” involved using a commercial brainwave (EEG) headset as a self-monitoring tool to measure her physical and psychological states. These performances obtained real-time feedback of her emotional reactions- an investigation into a new form of expression and trans-sensory experience by visually and audibly reflecting her inner states into tangible forms.
