Our group is interested in expressing mutual becoming using biosensing techniques to explore ideas of collaborative emergence. Using an Xth Sense
Mechanical Myography (MMG) sensor attached to the forearm of a performer, we are feeding information into a particle system generated in Max/MSP. The particle system regenerates based on a system of feedback. Additionally, The sensor relays audio signals through muscle vibrations that act as a sort of pre-signal seen in the visualization before the movement is actually enacted. The performer must build a relationship with their own biology through understanding how the sensor reads information from the human musculature. Through adaptive perceptions of our biological workings and systems of feedback mutual emergence forms and reforms.
