This project reflects on the current fixed “social distancing” in the future (online). The innovative point of our research is to detect and calculate the differences in brainwave signal data between two people and visualize the differences through programmed 2D moving images. In terms of the research process, first, we explored a new way of interaction, using brainwave signals to express “distances” and Moiré patterns as visual representations. We explore the visualization of electroencephalography (EEG) signal discrepancy in remote communication to enhance people’s perceptions of each other.
