Space Intimacy is an on-going public interactive installation which consists of a dome which the audience can enter & experience the reactions from the sensors detecting activity of another audience outside the dome.
We started this project from one concept: that is of the borders. Despite the fact that Internet has challenged the significance of borders, people aren’t getting automatically open-minded although they are more connected – isn’t it because everyone got their own borders? That’s why SPACE INTIMACY is challenging the notion of these personal borders, as the spectator A can literally witness the intimacy of the spectator B.
We use sensors to read the values of the visitors through their Heart rate, humidity, voice and facial expression. Connecting Arduino and MAX MSP to visualise the video inside the dark space we made.
