The Brain Noise Machine (AKA “the flying kitchen”) is a mind-controlled kinetic sculpture. In the absence of focused mental energy, the machine creates a continuous stream of chaotic noise. When a high level of mental focus is detected the machine falls silent, and remains silent as long as the user is able to maintain focus. It was created in collaboration with Santhi Elayaperumal and Joel Sadler. The Brain Noise Machine was debuted at “An Art Affair” on White Plaza on the Stanford campus, 2010. The Brain Noise Machine uses NeuroSky wireless EEG technology and was built on the Arduino platform.
