About Boiling Mind Project

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.

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.
