This work is about 'Emptiness’. In addition to the pure state of the enlightened child, we wanted to provide an opportunity to think about how the empty mind of AI born by machine is different, and existence of human being who has various limitations between the two extremes. In other words, post-AI, which imagines after the AI era, is captured in a video based on the power of artistic imagination along with science.
Undecimber is a data-visualization work created by extracting the performer's brainwave data using EEG equipment, utilizing and transforming the pre-produced video source using 3D graphics technology, and respond to the effect by the data. By applying fluid simulation using color channels and programming them to be organically transformed like an image flowing down, a dreamy image like a dream was produced. These variations interact with the rise and decrease of specific channel values in the EEG data, and different fluid movements are applied. Through this, the mood and style of the image were changed due to EEG data that changed according to the state of the performer.
