S.E.E.D: (Stellar Emissions Encapsulation Device)

Presented by: Abierto Mexicano de Diseño and Centro

Place: Museo Franz Mayer
Dates: October, 18 to 29 as part of AMD (Monday, October 23 closed)
Schedule: 10 - 17H

Dear friends and fans of S.E.E.D. and MUTEK Mexico,
The past few weeks since September 19th have been difficult, to say the least. Many thousands of people have been deeply traumatized, and we at team S.E.E.D. had been preparing to share our immersive art therapy platform to bring light and healing to the people of Mexico City.
After working with S.E.E.D. at Franz Mayer Museum during the Abierto Mexicano de Diseño and the following week, and through a workshop and conference at CENTRO, we must now announce that unfortunately, due to several logistical issues, the piece will not be a part of MUTEK.MX 2017. We are honored to have been invited to be involved with such a diverse and acclaimed program of cutting edge digital art. Even though we will not be showing S.E.E.D. we will always support MUTEK in whatever way we can and encourage you to celebrate with them from November 22nd through the 26th.
Regards,
Devin Fleenor - Team S.E.E.D.

S.E.E.D. brings an algorithmic exploration of time, space and the physical senses to Mexico City. Lasers and mirrors create three dimensional geometric light structures reverberated by analog video feedback. The many reflections of the participants are synthesized, processed, and glitched creating a captivating, yet minimal psychedelic experience.

An eight-foot magnesium, acrylic, and glass cube, the piece is activated and modulated by human interaction. Participants do not control S.E.E.D.; rather they converse with this autonomous “machine entity” using motion sensors, infrared cameras feeding facial recognition, and a hexagonal haptic pressure sensitive interface on the face of the cube.

The experience is grounded in an immersive quadrophonic sound field. Both sonic effects and musical landscapes are generated by the lasers themselves, which are in turn reacting to the environment. S.E.E.D. has a personality of its own, with a distinct voice, behaviors, moods, and reactions. S.E.E.D. also understands the mood of the participant. Positive emotion is monitored and remembered, using artificiel intelligence to adapt its algorithms to give the user more of what they like.

S.E.E.D. is conceived of as an art form with therapeutic potential: drawing from neuroscience research demonstrating that music, light, art, movement, and creativity can generate new neural pathways and enhance neuroplasticity.

Fleenor is partnering with Dr. Sri Krishnan, Professor and Dean of Biomedical Signal Analysis in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Ryerson University in Toronto. Starting at MUTEK.MX, we will begin collecting biofeedback data. Dr. Krishnan and his team of graduate students will analyze the generated data with the intention of demonstrating significant physiological changes and improved wellness. S.E.E.D. has potential as a tool for healing in those who suffer from brain trauma, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, PTSD, autism, and other neurological conditions.

S.E.E.D. was presented as an installation in progress from October 18 to 29 in Museo Franz Mayer.
