Cho, Eun Woo
AI, Brain Wave & Ideal City No.2, 2019, EGG, Programming, Multi Media, 820 ×1,070 ×300 cm
Eun Woo Cho’s work AI, Brain Wave & Ideal City invites the spectator to wear a wireless EEG headset and look at body parts (e.g., brains, arms, legs, and torsos) cast by the artist and illuminated with superimposed images of the spectator and the lighting activated by his or her brain wave responses. This symbolizes how one coexists in relationships with others and reflects on what would happen if one’s responses, representing information, were translated into data and fully exposed to everyone else.
