Alt-w | Insight/Outsight
Cycle 08 Alt-w Production Award -
Hannu Rajaniemi & Samuel Halliday
This project will use data visualisation techniques to explore the private experience of insight as evoked by reading a specially written science fiction short story.
With each reading an 'insight map' begins to leave an imprint on the text that created it, using data acquired by electroencephalography and eye tracking technology.
Aiming to engage new audiences by adding a different dimension to the reading experience, the project will also add print-on-demand publishing to capture the experience.
