Artist Statement

TakT performs live science art shows all over the world where they mix scientific imagery with original compositions and science talks. Their performances have a host of different settings and surroundings including opening ceremonies such as the FENS neuroscience conference (12000 people), art competitions such as Arte Laguna Prize at the Venice Arsenal and music festivals across the globe alike.

Scientific Emotions is conceived as a psychological and scientific art experience that is meant to invite its audience into an exploration of human emotions. Scientific Emotions brings forth a combination of scientifically created elements and the study and implementation of scientific theory on brainwave frequencies through the vehicle of an artistic audiovisual medium.

For the live show of “Scientific Emotions”, the 2 artists of TakT perform an interactive audiovisual performance with live music and video projections.

Tyler Kaufman performs live electric sitar manipulated through the computer, electric guitar (with live beat making through mallets and corkscrews) and live looping while Adèle Tilouine offers a V-jing live performance, reinterpreting together their science-art project Scientific Emotions. The visuals used by Adèle Tilouine are real scientific imagery that TakT collected from research labs and scientists.
