MINDSCAPE

MINDSCAPE

In MINDSCAPE, the performer interacts with a light structure made by electroluminescent (EL) wires and sound via an EEG (Electroencephalogram) interface, which measures her brain waves, which create and control the light and sonic environment.

EL cables glare when applied to an alternating current (AC). Once the AC has been activated, the data from the performer’s brain waves (via an EEG interface) takes control of the cables’ activation in different tempos. The sound section consists of a surround (quadrophonic) soundscape, which changes depending on the information coming from the EEG.

Claudia Robles-Angel is an audiovisual and new media artist born in Bogotá-Colombia, currently living in Cologne-Germany and active worldwide. Her work and research cover different aspects of visual and sound art, which extend from audiovisual fixed-media compositions to performances interacting with bio-data via the usage of interfaces such as, for example, the EEG (electroencephalogram, measuring brain waves activity).

Her work is constantly featured in not only media and sound-based festivals/conferences but also in group and solo exhibitions around the globe, for example, the ZKM Center in Karlsruhe (2005); Enter3 in Prague (2007), at the European Capitals of Culture Luxembourg and Romania (2007); 2008 at KIBLA Multimedia Centre in Maribor; at the ICMC (International Computer Music Conference) in Copenhagen and Montréal (2007/2009); at the Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl (2009), the SIGGRAPH Asia in Yokohama (2009), ESPACIO Fundación Telefónica in Buenos Aires (2010), the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival NYCEMF in 2010 and every year since 2013; the SIGGRAPH Asia in Yokohama (2009); the Re-New Festival in Copenhagen (2011); the NIME (New Interfaces for Musical Expression)  in Oslo (2011); ISEA (International Symposium on Electronic Art) Istanbul 2011, at LEAP Space for media Art in Berlin (2012), CMMR Marseille and Plymouth (2013/2015), at CAMP Festival – Salon Suisse, an official collateral event of the 55th Venice Biennale (2013),at the Audio Art Festival Cracow (2013), at Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center New York City (2014 and 2017), at SKOP Festival Frankfurt (2014 and 2016) at Nabta Art Center Cairo (2015), Museum of Contemporary Art Bogotá (2011 and 2015), MADATAC Festival in Madrid (2016), IK Stichting in Vlissingen (2016), at Tivolivredenburg during the ICMC 2016 in Utrecht, at Die Digitale Düsseldorf (2016), Sonic Visions Tübingen (2017) and and more recently at ISEA 2017 Manizales.   Vita.pdf
