Empathic Media

Besides using crowd-sourcing to create multi-user art pieces, I am extremely interested in the multitude of technologies available that can help us create unique experiences for individual users.

Things that come to mind are:

Facebook Connect (enables pulling data directly from your Facebook account and using it in the art piece) Example: Take This Lollipop by Jason Zada

Behavioral Targeting. Example: Interestbased advertising by Google

Eye/Face Tracking. Example: Here’s a Swedish app that allows you to do online EyeTracking through webcams

Mixing technologies like these, I think it would be interesting  to try to create an empathic piece of art. A platform that understands you and can gives you an experience that is highly individual. Based on personal data and current emotions…

I love this wonderful un-empathic drawing by artist David Shrigley
