This installation showcases a multi-purpose tool developed at the University of Surrey that facilitates the emergence of shared thoughts in a multi-disciplinary co-creative environment.
Over the past five months, computer software has been recording their 'free ideas' exchange in webspace, their 'thought improv', and it has registered how, through interaction, new and resonant ideas have emerged and taken shapes, and how they have acquired a rhythm as a collective thought within this shared electronic environment.
In this fascinating installation, the MindBeat team will sonify and visualise this shared environment and the ideas contained within it, as part of a multi-media artistic installation.
The MindBeat Sextet is a 'thinking ensemble' comprising Gabrield Cavalli (Chemical Sciences), Paul Krause (Computing), Alexandra Penn (Sociology), Nicolas Salazar-Sutil (Dance), Matthew Sansom (Music) and Paul Stevenson (Physical Sciences).
