Biomedical Signals in Media Art: towards the awakening of internal peace
Claudia Robles Angel and Lasse Scherffig / Germany
San Francisco Art Institute
This panel undertakes a deep and critical reflection about the general usage of biomedical signals from the mid 1960s to now- adays and their inclusion in artistic work, in regard both to the artistic application of these signals as well as the consequent theoretical implications. The members of this panel discuss con- crete applications of biomedical signals in dance, performance and installation, the role of the enacting self embodied in these systems and the implications interactive installations have for the self-perception through technology. They focus on the complex and hybrid relationships between body, technology and environment, the perceptual qualities emerging from it, as well as the ethical implications of employing these systems.
