Research overview

I’m currently undertaking a daily, yearlong autoethnography of a Brainwear device in order to critically explore its claims and capabilities. I’m using the cultural history of mind-reading and telepathy performances from the nineteenth century to the present-day to inform this analysis. What do such devices claim to do? What are they actually able to do? What is their cultural history? How do people respond to the idea of mind-reading and why? What are the neurorights of citizens and how do these technologies respect or infringe upon them? How can performance philosophy help us to think about and communicate these issues?
