Ms Karen Casey
Karen Casey is an interdisciplinary artist who employs a variety of traditional and new media in exploring intersections between the arts, science and society.
Casey has an ongoing interest in creativity in relation to perception and cognition. Following a period of personal research and electroencephalographic (EEG) testing and analysis at the Brain Sciences Institute, Swinburne University of Technology in 2004, she initiated the development of an interface to produce audiovisual effects from brainwaves. Several years of collaboration with digital effects designer Harry Sokol resulted in a software that produces generative video animation.
In 2010 she launched Global Mind Project with a public ‘neuro-art’ event ‘Spectacle of the Mind’, in collaboration with performance artists Stelarc, Jill Orr and Domenico de Clario. This project is now being developed towards an interactive online collaborative experience.
