Emotions from an Algorithmic Point of View
Performance, around 20 minutes. theater light, stool, iphone with face recognition software triggering a sound scape.

This work explores deconstructed facial expressions according to the Facial Action Coding System. This system forms the basis of contemporary emotion recognition software. With the help of the tracking mechanism of a mobile phone the performance demonstrates a computational approach to our emotions.
