On March 12, 2012, digital and video artist using game dynamics, and graduating DANMite Natalie McKeever came onto Gamers on Game to talk about her work and current projects, Internal Worlds that will be shown at the DANM MFA Graduating Exhibition, I’ve Got Something On Your Mind.
Internal Worlds. is a two-part installation using abstract video projection and interactive components to explore how our sensing bodies shape our perception, and our selves. The pulse of the participant is detected through a biosensor helmet and externalized as lights pulsing in time with their internal rhythm. The sound of their heartbeat is played back at the cadence of different species, as additional lights synchronize to this new, unfamiliar tempo. These competing pulses affect the participant’s state of mind and bring a hyperawareness to their body, as they viscerally experience the biorhythm of another species
