Blinking 1.0


Year: 2012

Media: Public performance, Wearable technology, Sound, MAX-msp programing, Processing application, Arduino Xbee.

Duration: 1 hour

Venue: Millennium Park, downtown, Chicago



This is a remote participatory performance. The performer stood far away from the audience, about 1500m. The performer wore a pair of conductive eyelashes that detect the eyes’ blinking movements and wirelessly sends the signal to a computer. Each blink will be translated into a gun shooting sound generated by the computer program. The audience was provide with a pair of headphones for receiving the gun shooting sound while using a monocular to observe the performer’s eye blinks.


In addition, this project is leading to another Twitter

performance, Blinking 2.0.

This is another version of the blinking performance.

During my grad lecture, I performed the gesture of blinking for a minute.
