post planning the project

March 8th, 2008

The last few days have flown. Sitting in my studio looking out the the amazing mountains of Banff. The residency has been great. The week has been full of artist presentations.

Working on the stages of Chameleon: mapping it out in a way that might be clear to all collaborators.

1. ethnographic style film to understand emotional contagion (adam kendon pub experiment)


2. live tool to understand emotional contagion and isolate micro expressions, most contagious gestures/expressions.


3. working on emotional algorithms


4. Looking at emotional algorithms with context (live feel from web or example live feed of –


5. Looking at emotional contagion and how it works in social groups – the propagation of emotions (making the algorithms of stage 3 more complex and networked)

looking at the propagation of emotions

6. Bringing in another mode of interaction into stage 5? – for example touch. If we touch the work (the act of touching is very personal) and also we know that the audience member needs to be near to the screen – which makes it easier for the emotion expression software to read the participant (not so spontaneous)


7. Integration of real time facial expression software. Using a computer with camera embedded test how it works with stage 5 and 6.


8. Introducing multi-participants – three emotion recognition cameras/three networked screens.


9. Idea for final version, up to 20 networked screens/ 8 real time facial recognition cameras.
