The work of Slovenian artist Davide Grassi consists of an interactive platform that utilises a BCI computer system that allows its operation by simply imagining specific motor commands. In the performance, “Brainloop” the subject, Markus Rapp, is capable of investigating urban areas and rural landscapes that he sees on Google Earth. He selects a location, camera, angles and positions and records the images in sequences in a virtual world.
The second part of the performance returns to the sequences and uses “Brainloop” to compose a soundtrack, selecting and manipulating recordings in real time that sound designer Brane Zorman places in physical space. The virtual environment allows the public to perceive the events in 3D. The work is the result of Slovakian artists and Austrian scientists.
