Behind your eyes, between your ears

Brainwave interactive artwork by George Khut

Wednesday 29 June until Sunday 17 July 2016

Digital media artist George Khut will work in a public studio space at the National Portrait Gallery to develop his brainwave interactive artwork and digital portraiture project. Khut uses biomedical sensing technologies to explore embodiment and mind-body processes. The project is supported by artsACT through its Arts Residencies ACT program.

During his residency Khut will record digital portraits of participants. Transformations in the appearance and sound of the artwork are the result of attention and mental focus.

Central to Khut’s work is documentation of audience experience and the idea of the exhibition space as public laboratory – a space to encourage observation, hands-on experimentation and discussion.

Public interest in participating has been strong so we can no longer accept expressions of interest, but please come along and experience the work from the outside.
