Moving Photon Interactive Installation/Performance by Friendred Peng Dance & Choreography by Seirian J. Griffiths Scored by Danny Hynds Cinematography & Edit by Aurelia Bergs Web development: Friendred Peng, Narayan O'Hanlon, Jacob Heredia EEG recording: Laura Rai, Hennie Lee Photography: Friendred Peng, Arturas Bondarciukas Moving Photon is an interactive installation/performance created by installation artist Friendred Peng that explores embodiment, social connection and remote presence during the age of the pandemic. This work translates physiological data from live EEG recordings to an installation and explores embodied approaches in computational synergized space. EEG data is streamed live to control the morphology of an installation during a dance performance. The perception of the machine by the participant is translated into movement, manipulating the viewers’ experience and creating a perceptive feedback loop of human-machine communication.
