Number of Audience Members: 2,000

Neu-collective Consciousness took place in May 2016 and was attended by over 2,000 people. It was commissioned and funded by openculture.org, the Arts Council, and Everyman Theatre, Liverpool where it was performed as part of Light Night Liverpool, an annual event which takes place in multiple venues across the city. This was the first public performance where the system developed in the previous experiment was used in a real-world scenario. It had taken one year of technical development and refinement for the system to be ready. Its use in a live performance environment allowed me to explore different hierarchical relationships between the roles of artist, artwork and audience.
