STATeMENT

- Matthew H., Matthew S., Naila K., Zahraa C., Owen C.

Sensenet is a concept piece realized as an experiential installation. It is centered around alien agency within art, inspired by a neuroscience project investigating how timing affects synchrony in networks. Alien agency is a property in which the artwork behaves in a way outside the creator’s intent. Thus, Sensenet creates an environment of unknown variables, enabling a novel state of perception. Timing and synchrony are central neuroscience patterns of the nervous system, from simple cellular activity to the whole-brain oscillatory activity.  The installation allows three participants to interact with each other. The participants are equipped with sensors that have been networked between individuals, creating a disruption of their individual sensation of both internal and external environments (their “Umwelt”). By networking the sensory inputs and outputs amongst participants, Sensenet immerses participants into a unique experience that subverts their own senses, thus challenging their identity, while synchronizing the collective senses into a unified perception, encouraging rediscovery of consciousness.
