This stunning artist uses emotional brain waves to manipulate water.
South Korean artist Lisa Park has come up with an interesting new art form. She took the words “brain power” and gave it a literal meaning through her art.
In her performance art, called Eunoia, which means “Beautiful Thinking”, she uses 48 pools of water, inspired by the 48 emotions, which react to emotional brain waves transmitted from her body, and read by sensors.

Linked up to an EEG (electroencephalography) brainwave detecting sensor which detects the brain waves she is putting out in real time, and then broadcasts them as sound, she creates rippling movements in the different pools resulting in her unique art.
She visualizes her thoughts and emotions, which causes the sound the speakers make to change and alter the way the water moves. In this way she makes an audio-visual representation of herself and her emotional state.
“I started working with biosensors especially EEG headset, because I questioned “how can I take this invisible energy and emotions and make it visible?” Park told The Creators Project. “When I am feeling certain emotions (anger, sadness, happiness), I believe that what’s inside me, more than 60% of water in human body, will create vibrations/energy within myself. So, I wanted to create an artwork that represents the inner part of myself.”
“The more clearly you understand yourself and your emotions, the more you become a lover of what it is.”- Baruch Spinoza

Here, Park is literally putting her inner struggles on display, and the whole show depends on how she deals with her feelings. The calmer she is, the less vibrations of the sound happen.
