CoS Workshop 4: Emotion
New forms of expression, new dimensionalities for time and space, new semantics for relationships and connectedness, new sensorialities - all these factors determine the emergence of additional forms through which emotions can be expressed or experienced, propagated and observed. Workshop participants will build a wearable communication device via which one can receive the emotional conditions of an observed-one as low-current electrical stimuli on various parts of your body.
The five CoS workshops Space, Time, Emotion and Identity (part 1 & 2) for a maximum of 15 participants are aimed at encouraging the festival visitors to actively contribute to the CoS live stream. Each will follow a hands-on approach to the themes investigated through CoS. All of them will address the way in which communication technologies and network processes have altered our perception of time and space, the constitution of identites and ways to express, experience, propagate and observe emotions.
Technical note for the workshops:
People wishing to attend are asked to bring their PCs, laptops or smartphones, however, they can also participate without. Tools will be provided that work on operating systems such as Windows and OSX, but in order to experience the full set of activities Linux-powered devices are recommended.
