Natalie McKeever: Internal Worlds

Abstract video projection and interactive components help explore how our sensing bodies shape our perception, and ourselves.

Natalie McKeever

Internal Worlds is a two-part installation using abstract video projection and interactive components to explore how our sensing bodies shape our perception, and ourselves. 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.
