BLINK is a performance using eye blinking as a performative tool. It is a part of our research into rhythms and patterns of our body and brain, and conscious and unconscious blinking as indicators of states of mind and different moods. We performed this experimental score for three people that generates blink instructions with different rhythms and chance variations. The blinks are captured with EEG and translated into a musical piece for light and sound, using the body as the intermediate between two different systems: the score and the performance environment.
