“If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”
Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project. Something no one had done before. If they could swing it, it would for sure be revolutionary. The bicycle is a tool to change the world. If we use bikes AND travel safe: Life will be better for all.

“Eunoia” is a performance that uses my brainwaves -- collected via EEG sensor-- to manipulate the motions of water. It derives from the Greek word “eu” (well) + “nous” (mind) meaning "beautiful thinking”. Electroencephalography (EEG) is a brainwave detecting sensor. It measures frequencies of my brain activity (Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma, Theta) relating to my state of consciousness while wearing it. The data collected from EEG is translated in realtime to modulate vibrations of sound with using software programs. EEG sends the information of my brain activity to Processing, which is linked with Max/MSP to receive data and generate sound from Reaktor.
Programming: a custom written MaxMSP code & Reatkor
Special Thanks: Tony Lim (sound engineer) for programming
Eric Blue(open source Processing code for receiving Neurosky EEG data)
