My Virtual Dream (2013) – Installation
Location: ScotiaBank Nuit Blanche 2013

My Virtual Dream was an innovative and interactive live performance experience at the intersection of science, art and music.  The installation enabled participants to use their brain waves to communicate with each other through an immersive audio and visual expression that will be projected onto video screens.

Using InterAxon MUSE brain-sensing headbands, participants worked together to collectively focus and relax to build and release gorgeous digital fireworks while recording results for use in scientific research in participation with Toronto’s Baycrest Institute.
