P300 is a new live-to-digital performance that was presented at Thames-side Studios on the 30th of September 2023. A giant multiple sculpture, inspired by neural architecture, was probed and manipulated by performers, accompanied by a live electronic score.
The P300 is a specific brain wave that is generated in response to the recognition of a stimulus. Its discovery led to the ‘oddball’ test, a lie detection method used in criminal investigations. P300 imagines a near future in which our intrusive thoughts are being mined by consumer neurotechnologies.
P300 is a collaboration with Travis Yu, Lily Tonkin-Wells, Fionnuala Kennedy and Dominic Kennedy.
