[ISEA2017] Artist Talk: Tara Parker — SoundMind

Artist Statement

SoundMind is a virtual environment in which, through the power of technology in combination with the mysterious phenomena of creativity, sound becomes visual. Participants can relax, observe, and participate in unified creative expressions. The goal is twofold: First to explore and understand the ways in which the technological environment affects the individual and the individual’s interactions, and Secondly, with these understandings, to develop an environment that will build participant’s empathy, curiosity, interpersonal understanding and soundness of mind via the sharing and receiving of audio and visuals.
