This weekend, Performance All Ages with Cloud Eye Control explores self-analysis and measurement. From drop-in experiences like the visually immersive Ruins Walk to the interactive Body Scans, Cloud Eye Control’s imaginative activations encourage participants to think about nature and the body in the era of artificial intelligence.

Psychic Blobs

Floors 1–6

Wander through the galleries to happen upon these colorful creatures.

LiDAR Data Bodies

Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Atrium, Floor 1

Light Detection and Radar (LiDAR) sensors measure the distance to a target by illuminating it with a laser light. They are used in products like self-driving cars to generate 3-D maps of their surroundings in real time. Stroll through the Haas, Jr. Atrium and explore how these sensors “see” the presence of your body. Presented in partnership with Velodyne.

Body Scans: Imaginary Tools for Self-Analysis

Helen and Charles Schwab Hall, Floor 2

Drop in for a one-of-a-kind face, hand, or full body scan.

Ruins Walk

Gina and Stuart Peterson White Box, Floor 4

Meander through fantastical, animated landscapes and reflect on modern ecology and its fragility.

Cloud Eye Control: Half Life is funded in part by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Theater Project, with funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
