ZERO1 is presenting John Slepian’s Transcendence, a performance installation that humorously and ironically explores new forms of embodiment in the digital world. Using a hacked toy brainwave sensor, electronics, and powerful actuators, the artist is literally levitated through the power of his mind. Slepian will be performing Transcendence during scheduled hours each day of the art fair.
