Neurogram is a neural controlled software, designed and built by Caterina Lani for her master's degree in New Art Technologies, within the course of Video Music held by professor Davide Riboli at the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino.
The program, controlled by a NeuroSky helmet and written in VVVV, imports an Instagram stream and stops when it feels particular fluctuations in brain waves of the connected wearer. The fluctuations apply to the image a series of glitches. If the user blinks the eyes the new glitched image is saved.
The video shows a test phase of the beta version of the software, with the ISIA students thanks to the availability of Interface Design course held by professor Valentina Rachiele.
The massive multitouch table "Future Ocean Explorer" was developed by the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and wirmachenbunt. The project was comissioned by the Future Ocean Cluster Kiel Germany.
This interactive basin presents a vast amount of information about recent ocean research as videos, images and animations.

LIVE SET excerpt:
flying through a real coordinates based Stars and Solar System 3D.
Every place, in which the human being lives, imposes you to choose. We are continually bombed by voices that try to check us and more our mind digs in the depth of own heart, more we hear the necessity to go over the barriers that are built. This way we are and so we will stay. We walk in a crowd of voices and we are continually looking for a something that can maintain us hungry and rebellious against our bossy Ego.
The instinct sometimes helps us and brings out. Human beings and the emotions belong to ourselves. We sometimes need the silence to really understand what we want and in which we obviously believe. Imagine you, as in a metaphor of the life, to find you in front of the choice among two doors: one left half open and the other wide open. From the left half open one a thread of light that emanates safety goes out, essential element for the human being.
That wide open is dark, it transmits insecurity and not for this it arouses less curiosity. The curious man is the man of the myth of the cavern of Plato; man that puts in danger his own certainties to follow his own instinct and to seek that element new main point for his mental growth. This man will always choose the dark room and what he will find inside, it will always be distinguished according to the emotional state in which is found.
The EP of Dubit and Scalameriya contains this meaning, music as metaphor of the life contained in the antithesis between safety and curiosity.
