Enlarge Your Consciousness in 4 Days 4 Free

  • Location:
    BTF Art Gallery, via Castiglione 35, Bologna, Bologna, IT

Enlarge Your Consciousness in 4 Days 4 Free uses people’s real time emotional expressions on social networks to animate a physical installation.

The emotions of millions of users on social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and FourSquare are harvested in real time (using open available APIs and techniques such as Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning) and used to give life to physical manifestations and info-aesthetic visualizations.

The project is the result of a wonderful collaboration between Salvatore Iaconesi / Oriana Persico (Art is Open Source) and Lara Mezzapelle / Giacomo Deriu.

Enlarge Your Consciousness in 4 Days 4 Free will be officially launched at BT’F Contemporary Art Gallery Friday, January 27th 2012 at 7pm, and is an official initiative of Arte Fiera OFF.
