The /piece/, a Heart-Brain Mind-Beats [¿A Database Random Remix?]
Milena Szafir and Clarissa Ribeiro / Brazil
This full day experimental hands-on workshop is based on the experimental project “MindRemix [navigational extra-sensorium]” (2015). How about the emergence of a specific kind of consciousness when we experience the “stream’engrams”? How about to explore the experience of revealing and facing the /piece/ by navigating our own personal video memories driven by mind waves?. Considering that knowledge processes are attached to the production of entropy externally to the systems involved, we invite to reflect on how the “stream’engrams” affect our neurological heart-brain’s systems behavior in a recursive way, implying in considering this experience in terms of systems of intercreating informational processes. As a theoretical mainframe, Milena Szafir proposes the “stream’engrams” as a term related to the clouding audiovisual aesthetics experienced by the algorithmic remix through online databases – streaming memories for editing –; what about the montage specificities of these images [and sounds], the visual dialogues? And Clarissa Ribeiro invites to reflect on how exploring this heart-brain synchronized conversation as an input in interactive installations, could be a way to understand mind and consciousness as emergences from whole body informational dynamics.
