Human beings continuously mutate. Over the last few years, this transformation has taken place at incredibly high speeds, mostly thanks to the wide and ubiquitous availability of digital networks and devices.
This changed the ways in which we work, learn, relate, consume, communicate, love.
Enlarge Your Consciousness in 4 Days 4 Free uses people’s real time emotional expressions on social networks to animate a physical installation.
The emotions of millions of users on social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and FourSquare are harvested in real time (using open available APIs and techniques such as Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning) and used to give life to physical manifestations and info-aesthetic visualizations.
The project is the result of a wonderful collaboration between Salvatore Iaconesi / Oriana Persico (Art is Open Source) and Lara Mezzapelle / Giacomo Deriu.

AOS, Art is Open Source, is an international informal network exploring the mutation of human beings with the wide and ubiquitous accessibility and availability of digital technologies and networks.
We move across arts and sciences, using technology, communication, performance, art and design, to instantiate emotional actions and processes that are able to expose the dynamics of our contemporary world.
We do this in academic, artistic, business and activist domains and, actually, we are focused on moving fluidly among each of these spaces.
