Aura

A digital mirror reflecting audience motion and emotion. This moving image work captures audience form and feelings with a camera and AI emotion detection technology. Each participant’s movement and mood are relayed as a colour tone emitting body contour. The result is an emotional feedback loop between artwork and audience.
