Science festivals - part 9: Biorhythm: Music and the Body #wsf11

Who wouldn't want to turn their body and skin into a musical instrument, or to generate a personal dance tune? How about sitting in an oscillating chair which allows you to experience physically the power of sound or to create your very own personal surround synthetic cinema?

These were just a few of the quirky activities on offer at Thursday's Biorhythm: Music and the Body event at the World Science Festival, in an exhibition created by Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin and running until August 6th.

Held at the Eyebeam Art and Technology Center, an unassuming building off 21st street, on first glance the packed exhibition looked like any other ordinary show, yet on closer inspection, visitors were suddenly propelled into an exploding sensory banquet of interactive displays and immersive demonstrations.
