Created by Guvenc Ozel, Cerebral Hut is a kinetic installation that works with an interface that measures brain frequencies and turns them into a reactive environment. It was initially on view in the Fall of 2012 at Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, as part of the Istanbul Design Biennial.
Cerebral Hut is an interactive installation that explores the relationship between architecture, movement and human thought. We traditionally assume that the built environment, whether in the architectural or the urban scale influences our psyche. What if we can reverse that relationship? What if a kinetic architecture could establish a direct connection between the thoughts of its user and itself in order to reconfigure its physical boundaries accordingly?
