A new kind of interactive art exhibit has opened up in London which lets visitors become the artists with simply the power of their mind! The new exhibit, titled “On Your Wavelength”, was designed by a team of professionals, including artist Marcus Lyall, composes Rob Thomas, and designer Alex Anpilogov, is a part of the recently opened Merge Festival in Bankside, London, and takes advantage of brain waves to paint out a light and sound performance. This is done by equipping the viewer with an electroencephalogram, or EEG, headset that detects electrical activity in the user’s brain. The headset is able to read mood and intensity of thought in the creation of the piece, displaying wildly different colors, sounds, and brightness with just a thought. With practice, users can decide which colors to display on the screen by putting themselves in the right mindset, creating a truly unique light show for every individual. The exhibit will be open for use until October 18th, making it an exciting attraction for both tourists and locals alike!
