This is a short synopsis of what I am thinking about for the site of the coal mine.

For the past two years I have been working on a series of art works that monitor the biological functions of the user's body and employs those
bio-potentials in interactive installation works. I am just now completing a work that employs the users breath to trigger images and sound on the hard drive of a computer.

For the project at the Interaktion Laboratory I am interested in monitoring the users heart rate and developing an interface that would connect a users heart rate to images and sounds projected from the hard drive of a computer. I am interested in working with dancers and musicians on such a project.
