Brain: the ultimate enactive interface?

{a posteriori: Brain: the ultimate enactive interface?}  Eshofuni@TheAbyss is a multidisciplinary project/performance embracing art, communication design and programming, that proposes an approach towards real-time representation of brain phenomena in performative art contexts using brain-computer interface. The Abyss is an ecologic system inhabited by entities and constituents with graphic and sonic forms — inspired by creatures that form the plankton phenomenon (e.g., zoids) — that interact between themselves and with Eshofuni qua performer ́s avatar.

Eshofuni – from the unseen to the s[cr]een!

{a priori: Eshō-funi} is a japanese Buddhist term: esho is a compound of shoho, meaning life or a living being, and eho, its environment. Funi, meaning “not two,” indicates oneness or non-duality. It is short for nini-funi, which means “two (in phenomena) but not two (in essence).” Ho of shoho and eho means reward or effect. At the most fundamental level of life itself, there is no separation between ourselves and the environment.
