VIDEO POST > The Changing Room

by Arshake |     17 March 2017

The video documents The Changing Room, a performative installation generated by an original software written by artist and programmer Lauren McCarthy, a place where visitors and passers by can browse and select the emotions that best reflect their emotional state. By then, the software works to echo, through different layers of sounds and lights, the emotional state in order  to ‘infect’ all participants. «Software takes command» over emotions, to quote the words by Lev Manovich that title his book (New York, Bloomsbury Academic, 2013).
