25 neighbors want Neuroflowers – Illumino-kinetic flowers you control with your mind and heart on Market Street.

Selected
About
Neuroflowers is an interactive biofeedback-based art piece. 

Using EEG to read  electrical currents from the surface of the head, we can determine different mental states, which then guide the behavior of illumino-kinetic magic flowers.

Using ECG to measures a person’s heart rate by registering the small electrical signals carried across the surface of a person’s skin each time his or her heart contracts. This signal is measured at the surface of the skin by electrodes embedded in the hand grips of the Hand-Grip Heart Rate Monitor. 

With Neuroflowers, the internal becomes external. The mind becomes tangible, shareable. Calming or focusing your thoughts changes the blossoming state and color of the flowers.
