Join us for the Launch Event of the large-scale interactive artwork Eye
Resonator by Brigitta Zics
Shearer as part of the FICTIONAL INTERLUDES I. Exhibition. A collaborative
project of artist Brigitta Zics and curator Gabi Arrigoni.
The Eye Resonator <https://vimeo.com/96634080> by Brigitta Zics and John
Shearer  is an interactive aesthetic ecosystem that applies
generative visualisation technology responsive to affective states of the
participants through reading their eye gaze. By detecting behavioural
changes it stimulates a process of self- observation and guides him through
a sequence of experiences and feedback loops.
For this public display of the artwork, curator Gabi Arrigoni has
developed, in collaboration with the artist, a new methodology that
explores the potential of fiction as a drive to engagement and a way to
enhance and transform the role of the viewers. The public is invited to
approach the Eye Resonator through the lens provided by a fictional
scenario conceived by speculating on the original intrinsic specificities
of the system.
Participants will be encouraged to forget their identity as gallery goers
and will have to rely on their capacities to react to sensory perception
and to find internal balance in order to perform the tasks assigned to
their own future selves.
