Created by a team of artists and scientists, RE/ME is an experimental, immersive technology that uses vibration and sound stimuli to change bodily self-perception. From August 1st to August 12th 2018, people from the Bay area were invited to visit RE/ME at the Swissnex building on pier 17, Embarcadero, San Francisco.
RE/ME is a tool that uses vibration and sound to increase body awareness. Body awareness can positively influence a range of different mental and physical issues. One way to increase body awareness is to apply vibration on the skin. RE/ME applies targeted and carefully composed vibration on the body to enhance awareness of those parts. RE/ME is a mediator that encourages reconnection with your body.
- RE/ME is currently being produced in Plymouth and the Philippines by four researchers. To find out more about the research behind RE/ME and how it works please visit the 'research' page on our website.
- The RE/ME team are excited to have been awarded a residency with DART in San Francisco. After competing with a number of projects at Hack The Brain Amsterdam, we presented alongside a select few at BOZAR in Brussels. If you would like to come and trial the RE/ME experience please find details below.
