“Cosmic Bitcasting” is a digital art and science project that emerges from the idea of connecting the human body with the invisible universe that surrounds us by creating a wearable interface that will provide sensory information on the gamma radiation, X-rays, and alpha and beta particles that pass through our bodies by triggering a series of embedded actuators (lights and vibration).
The wearable prototype has been developed at Etopia - Center for Art and Technology in Zaragoza, Spain as part of the residency program Reverberadas. The project consisting in the wearable radiation detector on the video - using one Geiger-Müller tube, as well as a textile cosmic ray (muon) detector - using two GM tubes.
Cosmic Bitcasting is currently being exhibited at Etopia where it will remain until September 2016.
A project by Afroditi Psarra and Cécile Lapoire.
