In March 2020, Mademoiselle Cinema and Keio Media Design presented "Boiling Mind" an experimental dance performance.
Audience members wore sensors to acquire heart rate and perspiration data.
This data is then converted into images, music, and lighting, which are projected onto the stage.
When the audience's emotions become tense, the stage space changes violently, and when they become relaxed,
the atmosphere on stage becomes calm.
At the beginning, an expressionless psychology of environment was gradually revealed, the dancers' dances themselves change as they sense.
This cycle of emotions forms a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and the emotions of the entire space blend together.
This is an entirely new immersive audience-participation experience using biological responses.
Boiling Mind is updated to version 3.0 with this performance. 3 dance companies will dance with the emotions of the audience. You will become an "accomplice" of the stage by wearing sensors. We hope you enjoy the complicity across the 4 dance performances.
The previous Boiling Mind 2.0 received the following awards for its innovation.
◆The 26th Student CG Contest in 2020
Winner of the Accenture Interactive Award
"I saw potential in physical interactivity beyond the interactivity of SNS."
(Mamoru Sato Senior Manager)
"Challenging new interactivity by acquiring biometric data from audience members"
(Yuna Tsukada member of a screening committee)
◆Academic paper accepted by ACM International Conferences TEI2021(Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction )
The exhibition was recognized for creating meaningful interactivity between the artist and the technology,
and for presenting a practical way to engage the audience.
Recognized as an outstanding example of collaboration between HCI research
and the arts domain, a variety of artists were the design decisions themselves contributed to HCI's research area
through their practical involvement in the artistic process.

This 3.0 version will be brushed up from the 2.0 version and further explore a new interactive way of involvement that unites dancers, audience, and space.
We want to make you feel as excited as when you fell in love, our ambition
I wonder if the machine will catch it.
Move your mind, move your center.
Dance, us. Fall in, you.
In a time when the environment in human live is being destroyed
This is our earnest wish for the future.

The collaboration between researchers and dancers began with an interest of the emotion. The sound created by the collected heartbeats (data) became rain, wind, birds and music. The dancers' heartbeats (data) became light, moving and visible like small animals. The 3 dances continued to be transformed each time in real time by the bio-data of the audience and dancers. In the final chapter, the 3 groups of dancers unite and co-create with the researchers' grand experiment. We want this festival to be a celebration of the "emotions" that emerge from people's bodies and minds!
Keio University Graduate School of Media Design The “Embodied Media” project creates future media technologies that record, share, extend and create various experiences that people gain through their bodies. See, hear, touch. Understanding and manipulating the physicality of human-to-human and human-to-thing interactions creates new physical experiences that lead to enjoyment, surprise, and comfort.
Keio University Graduate School of Media Design "Geist" project. Geist means "heart" and "ghost" in German. It aims to better understand humans and to expand their abilities while being playful. The combination of cognitive, psychological, and social science knowledge with wearable sensors and deep learning to stimulate surprise and curiosity (sense of wonder), for example, when you first ride a bicycle. That is the goal.
