Deep Dive
by artist Yambe Tam

Deep Dive is a psycho-geographical exploration of the deep sea in VR. An EEG sensor monitors your levels of attention and relaxation and allows you to descend deeper into the mysterious layers of the ocean as you master your mind through meditation. Deep Dive directly connects your state of mind with the state of the planet and encourages a personal journey of self-understanding, inviting you to surrender and find comfort in the unfamiliar. My work consisted in developing the software behind the VR piece, including integration of the EEG sensor.

Exhibited at Uncertain Data, FACT Liverpool, 15 Sept - 03 Oct 2021.
