Generative visual tool for entering "flowing" state of mind (recording of live session).
Emotiv Epoc headset was used for EEG realtime scan of the spectator, while observing generated visuals on the screen. When beta rhythm was dominating in spectator's EEG (normal/alert state), hypnotic opart pattern with dynamics correlating to beta intensity was shown, which led to more "dreamy" state (more alpha rhythm). When alpha started to dominate over beta, pattern was interrupted by some generic 3D visuals to break that hypno state and get back to normal; and so on.
Created as an exercise at Art and Brainwaves workshop by Enzo Varriale (Polytechnic Museum, Moscow)
To be enhanced, extended and released as a standalone installation.

Where the obstruction of light is often an unwanted artefact in projection-based AR installations, we explore shadows as dynamic canvases for supplementary projections. In defining shadow areas with your own body, visual information can be discovered in a playful way.
Visual art, educative content presentation, and gameful design converge to bring forth an interactive display that augments exhibition models in museum environments.illuminating-shadows.com

Digital Slaves created Fragment in Space with Olivier Ratsi (Antivj) a art piece composed of real time mapping, LED frames and electronics.
Fragment in Space is a light and sound sculpture whose elements are suspended by transparent strings and via hooks attached to the ceiling grid.
These elements are fragmented in a space according to a dynamical layout which increases the suspended state and offers the spectators depending on their positions a variety of points of view.
Modular, the system is adaptable to its exhibition space.
In this configuration, the facility was located in the center of the room occupied 13 m2 and a height of 3m.
The installation consists of 14 elements in red half translucent Plexiglas and six units composed of an aluminium structure embedded LEDs.
These elements can be independently illuminated in three variants; fully, partially or not at all according to a language, based on the lighting or extinguishing the final 44 parts.
This luminous scenography synchronized with a sound design brings the temporal dimension of the work.

Digital Slaves created with Visual System a LED sculpture in L'Atomium in Brussels in march 2012.
We usually imagine the home of the future as a cold cube full of neon fluorescence aggressively plunged into permanent night. Surely inspired by classic sci-fi movie Blade Runner or as Johnny Mnemonic, this conventional expectation of a bleak future but paradoxically hyper-lit is frigid as irrelevant to the extent that a normal man can not bear more 5 minutes the light emitted by these tubes without losing any enthusiasm. The Atomium has yet made a bet that kind of hostile environment in your retinas, and asked Visual System to completely rethink the visual environment of the escalator with Transit.
Transit is a bright, sprawling form. This device and its LED is an architecture in architecture. It offers the possibility to forget the strange physical structures of the escalator, while stressing its existence. Transit therefore not merely to dress the escalator, she redefines it offers disembodied and dreamlike dimension.
Digital Slaves was consulted by Visual System and Superbien for technical advises to stage a LED sculpture for BNP Paribas Concept Store in Paris (place de l’Opera).
Using a structure placed at the back of shop windows, a network of LEDs produced different light shows.
