The installation Interfaces for Boris and Mindaugas provides interfaces for the boxer dog Boris and his host, so that the host experiences how the dog behaves, and the dog experiences the behavior of his host. The installation consists of human and dog-sized objects, interfaces and 3D tutorials. If the interfaces are connected, a bond is established between the dog and its host. To communicate, heart rate or brain activity is measured, interpreted and converted into an electrical signal.
