Interactive kinetic sculpture
Axon is a kinetic sculpture that reflects users' stress by collecting EEG data through a headset, and then moves in response. How does our physiological state affect our psychological state? We experience stress relief by being able to see and understand our emotions, yet sometimes we are not even aware of our stress. Once we realise we are stressed, visualising our abstract negative emotions and anxieties removes their power over us. Axon is an exploration of the connection between one’s physiological state and psychological state in regards to stress manifestation.
