Get A Chance To Share And Synchonize Your Brainwaves With Marina Abramović, ONTD!

Marina Abramović seems to be constantly in the news lately—if she's not launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new arts center, then she's teaming up with Lady GaGa for weird art videos, which itself was done to help Abramović reach her Kickstarter goal (she made it). And now that she's raised $661,452 to found the Marina Abramović Institute, she's collaborating with Suzanne Dikker and Matthias Oostrik on "interactive brain-art installation" and neuroscience experiment Mutual Wave Machine.
The piece looks at the notion of the phrase "being on the same wavelength" by investigating brainwave synchronization using custom software that collects and analyzes brain acitvity in real-time. Similar to her The Artist Is Present performance, members of the public will sit opposite each other, but this time in EEG headsets, while sharing a silent "mutual gaze" as the equipment records their activity and displays it in real-time—with the aim to explore the "transfer of energy between performer, public, and participant."

Here's how the piece is described in the press materials:

Enclosed by an intimate capsule and immersed in an audiovisual environment that responds to and reflects their shared brain activity, visitors can directly experience and manipulate their internal efforts to approach each other, or distance themselves from each other. During the experience, greater brainwave synchronization is reflected in greater vividness and more coherent and recognizable audiovisual patterns, while lack of synchronization strays towards dark audio-visual chaos: a faint ringing in the ears and static in the retinas.

It will feature as part of the TodaysArt Festival in The Hague, Netherlands taking place on the 27th and 28th September.


Ugh, it's fucking ridiculous that the "art" tag is bundled up with "toys, memorabilia, and collectibles" like it's not even within the same league as Kween Marina. Honestly, there should be a separate "art / artist" tag as I have mentioned in my last Marina post.



Would you like to sync and share your brainwaves with Marina, ONTD?
