AIBO is a love story between a performer wearing a brain computer interface connected to a live time prosthetic body of light that displays their emotions as various colors, akin to an exterior nervous system, and an emotionally intelligent artificial intelligent entity that responds and interacts with the performer. The performer and entity engage in dialogues about their intimate relationship, all the while interacting with an audience. Both the performer and the AI entity’s emotional states, which are monitored thorough biometrics and semantic analysis of their emotions launch databases of visuals and sonic environments allowing viewers to see into their (both the performer and AI) hidden cognitive states.
