1986 Human Loop

In the spring of 1986 I built a communication loop between two people in a gallery in Vienna

The Setup:
Two humans sitting side by side. A wall was built between them so that they could not see themselves. The brain currents were measured and converted into an image. The pictures were shown on a monitor to the communication partner The communication loop starts from the moment when both persons looked at their monitor.

Technical Descrition:
2 Monitors 2 Commodore VC20 - Intern AD converter - Computercode in assembler 2 Silver Electrodes for the Brainwaves

This Installation was shown also at ars electronica in Autum 1986
