                                                          Is an art exhibition where the spectator is part of the performance. By wearing a headband, the audience can generate art in real-time based on the EEG frequencies, generating a composition that contains music and images through artificial intelligence. That piece of art is the next stimulation for users to continue the narrative and generate a closed-loop neuroscience. After this experience, spectators can take home a QR code as a souvenir that lets them access an NFT to recall the event. This project has been developed by ANT with the support of Rootstrap and Daofy
