A digitally simulated ocean, resonates with the audience’s mind.
The installation is comprised of an EEG brainwave sensor and an animated projection of an ocean.
Chinese idiom Nao Hai could be literally translated into “Brain Ocean”，it is an analogical representation simply for “The Mind”, implies the similarities between the mind and the ocean – mysterious, deep and almost intelligently incomprehensible. The ancient Chinese has been very interested in the relationship between the mind and the physical reality. By coining the word Nao Hai, they expressed an ideology of connecting the reality and the mind. I’m fascinated by the analogy and were driven to create something that could picture this idea using new media technology.
