The Face Visualiser \ Daito Manabe (2010)
Artist, coder, hacker, mathematician, sound designer, DJ and VJ, Daito Manabe redefines the existent media and technologies for his unique perspective. Converting sounds into electrical impulses is one thing; transferring these impulses via diodes to a person’s facial muscles is another. Manabe presented a performance that places demands upon his own facial muscle as well as the abdominal muscles of his audience.
Since The Face Visualiser, Manabe went onto the be the first artist commissioned for COSMOS, a flagship art-science residency between AND, University of Manchester’s Jodrell Bank Observatory and bluedot festival.
