solitude

Biofeedback Virtual Reality experience taking in the viewer's heart rate data through a pulse sensor and altering the visual landscape in real-time.

This piece reconceptualizes loneliness as solitude by developing a unique body and sensory awareness. Users become aware of their solitude, but in return, experience a 'world' influenced by their state of being and breathing.

Unity 5, Arduino, Heart Rate Pulse Sensor.

Brainstorm

My first iteration of the work Solitude. However, my interest in biofeedback data grew as I incorporated inspiration from other artworks that involved real-time data and meditative inquiry.
