Life Ink

Life Ink explores the inner mechanisms of creativity within our brain and body. Our research team has created wearable gear capable of capturing real-time brainwaves and biological signals from the body, generating a new form of ink named Life Ink. Can the human mind and body become the pen that generates ink expressing our creativity? These signals are visualized as a constant stream of three-dimensional immersive ink, expressing our emotions and creative moments in a completely new form. The project explores the journey of our creative sparks. Life Ink is part of the Ars Electronica Futurelab’s Future Ink research.
