Unstable Empathy is a collaborative experience in which the meanings of cooperation, entangling and consciousness are directly perceived at the physiological level.
It’s an intimate environment re-mediated in real-time by the mind activity of two players which are constantly forced to negotiate their emphatic state.
At each session, EEG headsets are being mounted on the heads of two participants which will be positioned in front of each other in complete darkness.
With the only prompt to “feel”, the players develop their own methodology of interaction, to finally discover their own physiognomies superimposed and experience their selves as a single entity.
