“Important information can be easy to understand, yet alienating. I seek to understand the senses we experience about vital topics and the ways we can abandon the sense of alienation to finance and technology.”

 

Her interactive piece “Mind in the Mood” invites viewers to witness their very own thoughts (and those of others) through real-time visualisations of brain waves which are varied and controlled by the user's emotions.

While many talk about the future of technology Bagaeva, experiments with its present. Olga's research is based on the future of technology, or else furetu, since the future lacks reality.

Technology lives in a world of commercial success, where it is been celebrated.  This project promotes human abilities instead of a piece of technological advancement. Mind the mood is an experiment that tests if the human abilities help us to control our emotions and stream our feelings from sad to happy. Le Goog is an art object and an application that translates words into images. With the use of Google algorithms, Olga is creating a tool to make these algorithms into a piece of art.
