Crossmodal Equivalences: Thesis Exhibition by Eric Miller

Crossmodal Equivalences: Thesis Exhibition by Eric Miller


January 14, 2020 - January 17, 2020

Crossmodal Equivalences is a multisensory art installation created by Arts PhD candidate Eric Miller, exploring how differing presentations of correlated audio, visual, and tactile stimulation affect conscious experience.  The work consists of a single algorithmic composition streamed over radio waves to several single-user stations, each with a unique hardware configuration. One additional station, designed in collaboration with Carla Wille Kielwagen, accommodates up to three users simultaneously.

Participants are invited to experience the work at EMPAC Studio Beta between 12-5 pm Tuesday Jan. 14 to Friday Jan. 17.  The Exhibition is free and open to the general public.

Showings will occur every half hour, with participants selecting a station, experiencing the 10-minute piece, and completing a user experience survey. Each showing is limit d to 15 participants.

 Eric Miller is a PhD student in Electronic Arts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute researching the connections between multisensory experience, aesthetic engagement, and bodily/self perception.
