Life Ink

Life Ink by Ars Electronica Futurelab in collaboration with Wacom, explores the inner mechanisms of creativity within our brain and body. The joint 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.
