IoA Sliver Gallery Cerebral Hut, May 7, 7pm
Cerebral Hut, Güvenc Özel
We traditionally assume that the built environment, whether in the architectural or the urban scale influences our psyche. What if we can reverse that relationship? What if a kinetic architecture could establish a direct connection between the thoughts of its user and itself in order to reconfigure its physical boundaries accordingly? Originally conceived for the Istanbul Design Biennial (2012) “Cerebral Hut” is an interactive installation that explores the relationship between technology, movement and human thought. It is the first interactive space in the world that morphs physically according to brain activity. Based on data it receives from a sensor that detects concentration levels of participants, it kinetically re-configures itself continuously and through time.
Güvenç Özel is Assistant Professor at Studio Greg Lynn, Institute of Architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. “Cerebral Hut” is made possible through the generous contributions of die Angewandte, Institute of Architecture, Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts, and Istanbul Museum of Modern Art.
Installation Opening: May 7th, 7 pm, Angewandte Lichthof 1
May 8th-May 24th, 2013
