Percepta

 
Cai Matthews (Wales 1986) is based in London where he works for onedotzero www.onedotzero.com. He graduated from the University of Wales Newport, where he gained his postgraduate degree in animation. Whilst continuing to combine his creative ideas with his interests in science & technology, he is also hoping to become more involved within installation, abstract & code-art art communities.

Percepta (2010) is a piece of AV design in which the visual aesthetic and audio output are direct results of data created from reading and analysis of key perceptual functions that occur within us at an unconscious, automatic level. Though by their very nature these processes are both silent and invisible, the piece attempts to represent their complexity, density, dynamics and ultimately their beauty. The audio is created using data gathered from the Primary Auditory Cortex and Cerebral Cortex of the brain using an electroencephalograph or ‘EEG’, while processing audio and visual information. This data is then processed to produce a piece of audio design that captures the complexity and volume of the brains activity. The visuals of the piece are created using a combination of expressions and numerical data gathered from the ‘EEG’ with a range of graphical software and hardware, and are influenced by the aesthetics of generative digital art.
