Connected Cognitive Calibration.
Plywood, Nylon Harnesses

Connected Cognitive Calibration is a performance piece which uses a custom device to connect five human bodies together, forming a human arachnid. A tightly connected and unified body through which one can hyper-sensitively feel the movements of other humans. At first, the participants struggle as they have to react to each others unpredictable movements and get used to compromising control over their own body’s. However, this device soon encourages individuals to start recalibrating the way in which their brains control their bodies. It encourages individual thinking minds to start working in sync, gradually making participants move as a single-minded organism. This performance piece ultimately displays the compromising process that is recalibrating the cognitive workings of the human brain to think collectively.
