Capture in Art exactly how you feel

Always have been fascinated how the output of biofeedback devices would sometimes look like art.

A combination of ECG, sphymomanometer and brain wave device can be hooked up to an oil paint excreting machine, calibrated to release colors depending on feedback associated to emotions (like red for anger feedback). This can be released to a medium say water between two pieces of pane glass and frozen. Electric stimuli from biofeedback devices can also be introduce into the medium for interesting effects. Artist can say that this is what his anger looks like.

       How about a double-walled, clear plastic helmet that displays brainwaves in different colors, where they are strongest.

       You mean a sort of Winamp Visualization style plug in? I agree this would generate interesting images, though I doubt the final picture would be that different from the various psychedelic effects produced by songs or seen in paintings since the 60s. The clinicality of the painting machines would be kind of cool, compared to the natural turbulence of splattering (Jackson Pollock etc), but otherwise the images would be somewhat samey.   

       Course if the art is more in *how* it's made than in the finished product, making it essentially a conceptual piece, then this is an excellent idea. You just need to convince someone that that in itself is worth paying top dollar for. Not difficult.

       Does Kirlian photography accomplish this in any manner? I don't know enough about it.
waugsqueke, Sep 13 2002

       Kirlian photography, as far as I can tell, uses the phenomenon of electric fields interfering with light to create supposedly psychic photographs or photographs of auras. The electric fields need to be pretty strong and more importantly, not more than about half an inch off the plate, so, no I don't think Kirlian photography would do it.

       Reminds me of Io-Bart.   

       That's the episode in 2017 where they try and terraform that moon. Bart, who is supposed to be minding Maggie, leaves her in one of the diggers, and she gets locked inside.   

       Homer clambers onto the side of the digger and his extra weight means the digger's path curves, carving an enormous "U" on the surface.
