Critical Mass, xCoAx, Madrid 2018
Critical mass is a connected installation exploring behaviours of automation, digital crowds and the limits of self-exposure, social interactions, data ethics and sharing cultures. The installation connects the exhibition space with a stablished video chat engine. The visitor gets connected to a mass of random people in real time through an algorithmic intervened chat. Data of the interactions is collected and further used to extract facial features and train further automation systems.
