Lisa Park – Eunoia II

"When I feel certain emotions (anger, sadness, happiness), I believe that these emotions within my body, which exists for 60% out of water, also creates vibrations and energy"

Lisa Park – Eunoia II

‘Eunoia II’ involves using a commercial brainwave(EEG) headset as a self-monitoring tool to measure a performer’s physical and psychological states. This performance obtains a real-time feedback of a performer’s emotional reactions. Throughout the performance of ‘Eunoia II’, the intensity of a performer’s feelings at the time are mirrored in the intensity of the sound in terms of volume, pitch, speed, and the panning of the sound output. As a result, the water responded in real-time creating different formations of ripples and droplets in unpredictable patterns.

American-born and Korean-raised, Lisa Park is and interdisciplinary artists who is currently based in New York. She is a recipient of NYFA ( New York Foundation for the Arts) a fellowship in the category of Digital/Electronic arts.

Her works where featured on Wired, The Creators Project, The New York Times’ Bits Blog, Time Out New York and many others. Park’s work investigates a new form of expression and trans-sensory experiences. She developed a series of performances using biosensors (brainwave heart-rate devices) as a medium for manifesting her inner states.
