| Alter the Perception of Self |
Xin (刘昕) is a media artist, engineer and researcher. In this talk, Xin discusses her work that alters the perception of self, through multi-sensory stimulation and induced interceptive experiences.
"The sense of self is not fixed but continuously updates in response to the present information. When the body senses itself internally and localizes its actions, it provides the basis for a material sense of self existence. At the same time, our mind registers the sense of an agency with free will, the sense of being the cause of voluntary action. Present self continuously becomes the past, and by the time we look into it we are in another present, consumed with planning the future."
