SEEMEN 

SEEMEN are an SRL-type art collective ("art workers militia & guild") who create interactive pieces involving robotics and fire. Not quite as industrial as SRL, they seema bit softer with more of a spiritual we-could-be-immortal-bio-robots sort of vibe. From their homepage:
Virtually anyone who attends a performance has the chance to operate a machine that can, well, kill them, but will preferably empower them. To make people immortal.
As Noam Chomsky says, we live and have a culture of fear, we (SEEMEN) aspire to rid this fear from our culture.

I BUILT AN EKG UNIT and cannibalized into it and hooked it up to this fire ring. So, AS YOUR HEART BEATS THE FIRE RING PULSES WITH IT!
QUITE AMBIANT AND MEDITATIVE. TRUE BIOFEEDBACK.

See lots more examples, as well as dates for upcoming performances on their site.
