Running Man is a proposition for the body and the mind. It asks: what happens in the brain when the body is subject to the stress of physical endurance work? Specifically, the question relates to what parts of the brain are affected at various levels and engagements of physical stress and what promulgation of thought and image may occur in direct response to this. The project will comprise two streams of research and a demonstration of findings. The first research stream involves investigation of the causal relationship between the body and the brain, and the second, the development of real-time interactive software that responds to information provided by that relationship in an audio-visual language.
Stream One: The Body on the Brain (ACU National/St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne)
Stream Two: Development of Interactive Software (ALiVE, City University, Hong Kong.
