This event will take the form of a research project to collectively consider emerging technologies that analyse our eye movement and their potential impact on our psychological health. The artist Liz Magic Laser will be joined by EMDR therapist Dr. Ameet Aggarwal and face tracking expert Dan Hill Ph.D., author of Emotionomics.
Participants will have the option to experience live feed analysis of their facial expressions using market research technology. Data visualizations will be created using machine learning that interpret your eye movements and emotions. This exercise will not collect any personal or biometric data. The event will be recorded and published afterwards on the Tate website. A consent form clearing the recording and use of the recording will be sent with more details ahead of the event.
Participants will also be introduced to EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) techniques to understand the effect these technologies may have on brain patterns. A guided grounding meditation will be led by Dr. Ameet Aggarwal as an orientation for mindful brainstorming.
This event is part of Liz Magic Laser’s residency ‘Ocular Choreography’ with the Public Programmes team. It is part of the Terra Foundation for American Art Series: New Perspectives.
The event is produced in partnership with Visage Technologies and Goldsmiths, University of London’s Department of Computing.
