"There are eyes everywhere. No blind spot left. What shall we dream of when everything becomes visible? We'll dream of being blind." -Paul Virilio

The Blind Spot explores the frontier between internal and external imagery. Building on successful previous explorations of VR-based interactive art, The Blind Spot uses a EEG sensor to build in real-time a VR world to be explored.

The EEG information generates both the landscape that can be explored and a musical environment, establishing a feed-back loop where the computational system and the user's brain collaborate in the creation of the experience.

The project continues the exploration started withe the projects Awkward Consequence (http://www.awkwardconsequence.com) and The Vision Machine (https://sonarhongkong.com/zh/2017/artists/the-vision-machine-sonar-d), which were collaborations between Christian Clark, Tobias Klein, and Tomas Laurenzo.
