affective resonance: (e)mergent thought-fields in temporary social space is a technologically enhanced environment that supports participatory behavior and hopes to connect individuals through the visualization of thought in time and space, revealing the discrete network existing in users’ immediate environment.

This project involves 3 participants, each equipped with an EEG (Electroencephalogram) headset, interacting with a fluid-based centerpiece that fluctuates according to participants’ neurofeedback in real time (and space). Each participant is isolated through sound, but collectively connected through vision as they co-construct the dynamics of the fluid in the centerpiece by meditating and controlling their mental states, individually and collaboratively. This neuro-responsive environment portrays David Bohm’s implicate order (1980), perceived through vision and sound, as it may be grasped in thought in the context of a temporary community.
