PERFORMANCE IN SALT MINE
Deep in the womb of the earth, Amy Karle taps the space through performance to share the experience the pressures on the body being so deep in the earth, and the sensations and forces of being in this ancient and historically loaded space of the Wieliczka Salt Mines of Poland which reaches over 1000 feet down into the earth, with a history of human use since Neolithic times (excavated from 13th century).
Amy Karle connects her body and consciousness to technology to create art, repurposing a Sandin Image Processor as an electrophysiological visualization device.
In this performance, Amy Karle manifests the symphony of the mind into sound. Using an electroencephalogram (EEG) neuroheadset, she translates thoughts and emotions into musical composure by connecting brain activity to musical instruments in a digital interface.
