Designed immediacy.
Atmospheric experience in an affective-responsive environment.

As the concept of ubiquitous computing predicted, increasingly small, inexpensive and accurate, networked sensors, actuators and controllers make computers and interfaces disappear and merge with the natural environment, allowing an immediate connection between humans and surrounding technological devices and services.
In our artistic research project, we examine human perception in a physically staged and mediated responsive installation, focussing on human physiology, affect and association in a sensitive environment as well as the question of agency in hybrid ecologies.

Video description: The visitor puts on the chest belt with incorporated breath, heartbeat and acceleration sensors. The biofeedback data is mapped to physical parameters of sound, light, air pressure and airstream in real-time and collected for later analysis.
