The SPACE10 Pavilion at Chart Art Fair
We are delighted to announce that SPACE10 will once again house one of the five pavilions at CHART ART FAIR — the leading Nordic contemporary art fair.
As the worlds of art, design, technology and architecture continue to overlap, SPACE10 and CHART presents a pavilion that interprets and reacts to visitors’ emotions in real time.
The installation Sum of Us is shaped like a giant cloud suspended in a matrix. Visitors can walk into this emotionally-aware pavilion, where cameras and sensors track each facial expression and use deep learning algorithms to analyse them and respond with a personalised audio-visual experience, based on how each visitor feels. All of the read emotions are gathered and stored visually in the infinite cloud, exhibiting the art fair’s accumulated ‘emotional state’ for guests at all times.
Sum of Us is created by architect Sean Lyon, interaction designer Andreas Refsgaard, lighting engineer Bo Thorning, sound designer Lasse Munk and SPACE10 in collaboration with CHART. The installation artistically and playfully interprets the current state of technology, touching upon everything from open-source design, cloud computing to machine learning, computer vision and affective computing.
CHART SOCIAL is an ambitious non-profit programme exploring creative alliances between the fields of art, design, architecture, performance, music and talks. Along with CHART ART FAIR and CHART DESIGN FAIR the three pillars constitute CHART as an influential non-profit organisation that is committed to strengthening the role of the Nordic region within the international cultural scene. The sixth edition of CHART will take place in Copenhagen from 31 August – 2 September 2018
