        Video documentation of OZ, an interactive bio-sensing installation, seen here as part of Culture Night Belfast 2013. OZ critiques our culture's growing obsession with quantifying the self. It explores what happens when the most personal data, the behaviour of the heart, is projected into the public domain. Much gratitude to the MIT team http://people.csail.mit.edu/mrub/vidmag/ who developed the eulerian video magnification code upon which the heart rate measuring aspect of this artwork is based.

            Video documentation of Membrane, at it's inaugural outing at the Fabric show at Platform Arts, Belfast. Membrane is an interactive bio-sensing installation exploring affective vibrations, intersubjectivity and the permeability of our barriers. With a nod to affect studies and string theory it uses sound and light to project the heartbeats of participants into the public sphere. Membrane places the curious centre stage, turns the spotlight on affect and locates the bypasser as witness and collaborator. In celebrating the affordances offered by this newest piece of contact-free and unobtrusive biofeedback technology, the work toys with its potential use within the existing arsenal of surveillance technology, a future where pervasive surveillance in-corp-orates the measurement of intimate bodily processes.

              BB got your beat reveals the magic of a world where our vital signs can be secretly measured. The work explores how the phenomena of publicly exposing internal bodily processes, affects the subject, their heart, and their social interactions. It plays on our techno-paranoia, depicting how pervasive surveillance and our growing compulsion for quantifying the self may play out in the not so distant future. This bio-sensing interactive video work uses MATLAB software, which relies on facial recognition to measure heart beats, and Max software, to translate changes in the rhythm of the heart into sound and video. The invisibility of the interface, the clinical nature of the housing and the disco inspired video effects, all hint at the innocuous applications that bore this technology. This non-contact, bio-sensing addition to existing techniques of surveillance expands the scope of observation by allowing the condition of the human body to be interrogated, as a potential contagion or criminal. BB got your beat reminds us that the citizen body may now be surveilled on the inside. It is a token of foreboding. Much gratitude to the MIT team http://people.csail.mit.edu/mrub/vidmag/ who developed the eulerian video magnification code upon which the heart rate measuring aspect of this artwork is based.

                    Tarraing anáil invites you to rethink the most natural of all tasks, breathing. Step into the darkness and become the composer of your very own personal sound and light show. This intensely intimate bodily function is amplified by a smart corset, that unlike other corsets, allows you to breathe fully. It is embedded with electronics including sensors and fibre optics. The respiratory breath sensors measure your breathing behaviour and translate it into sound and light. Here you can redefine breathing beyond the essential life sustaining gaseous exchange that we take for granted. The way we breathe effects everything we do; how we feel, our memory, our sleep and the choices we make. It has profound effects on our health affecting our respiratory, cardiovascular, neurological, muscular and gastrointestinal systems. Retune your breath at the Tarraing anáil booth. This work is the collaboration of Shirley Coyle, researcher and designer in the field of wearable technologies and smart textiles, and Jiann Hughes, interactive artist and researcher.

                      Action art for vexed body and biophysical media (Xth Sense Biosensing Wearable Technology) While I pull with bare hands 50kg concrete blocks in a circle, low frequency acoustic sounds are produced by the resistance of my muscle and the pulsating blood in my veins. These sounds are digitally amplified, encoded in an audiovisual scape and diffused by eight loudspeakers and a video projector. http://marcodonnarumma.com/works/hypo-chrysos Recorded live at Inspace, Edinburgh, UK, February 2012. Xth Sense is: - a low-cost biosensing wearable hardware device; - a DSP modular software for capture, analysis and processing of biological sounds of the body (Pure Data-based). Designed and developed by Marco Donnarumma with the support of: ACE Sound Design, The University of Edinburgh Dorkbot ALBA @ Edinburgh Hacklab. Special thanks to Marianna Cozzolino and Andrea Donnarumma.
