Theme of the Month December '08/January '09

Curating responsive art from bodily input


This list has discussed the challenges of curating artwork that is physically interactive or locative (Nov 2001; Apr 2004), but has not so far discussed those works which respond to biofeedback such as heartbeat, breathing or galvanic skin response. With one of next year's ISEA's sub themes being 'tracking emotions', it seems a good time to discuss how the nature of art using bodily input needs particular consideration.

Physiological data is used to track emotions that are pre-conscious. But what does it achieve beyond science/therapy to provide a human with feedback on their pre-conscious bodily responses in the context of art?

Do artworks which use biofeedback use different criteria in evaluating their success, when compared to interactive artworks which use a more conscious way of interaction?

If emotions are tracked via biofeedback, how can art go beyond the simplistic or purely scientific?

How does it affect an audience differently when they are wired up or tracked from a distance? How do curators deal with these issues, and the sheer variety of audience response?
