Karen Lancel and Hermen Maat explore the tension between embodied presence, intimacy, privacy and trust in current social-technological systems. In E.E.G. KISS the artists investigate how a kiss can be translated into bio-feedback data. At the Museums Night they create a synesthetic kissing ritual, in which all participants feel, see, hear, touch and experience a communal kiss. While kissing, the participant’s brainwaves are measured and analysed by a computer interface which in turns translates the real time E.E.G. data into a music score and an immersive floor projection.
