In this interactivity we present Mind Pool, an exploratory Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) interactive artwork that provides real-time feedback of brain activity to those interacting with it. Brain activity is represented sonically and physically via a magnetically reactive liquid that sits in a pool in front of the participant. Mind Pool is designed to present this information ambiguously so as to encourage sustained interactions and self-reflection from participants through motivating them to relate the ambiguous feedback with their brain activity.
