Unconscious Flow

Unconscious Flow 無意識の流れ
2人のコミュニケーションの無意識の関係を2つのCGの人魚で可視化した作品
観客は指にしたセンサーから心拍を図り、心拍とお互いの手の位置から心理的な同調
性を計測するモデルを心理学者と一緒に作った。
そのモデルに従って、以下のインタラクションが働く作品
心拍が高くて手の距離が近い場合は、協調性が高く、
心拍が低く手の距離が遠い場合は、お互いに関心がない
心拍が高くて手の距離が遠い場合は、お互いに恥ずかしがっている
心拍が低く手の距離が近い場合は、お互いに安心している

Unconscious Flow is an interactive system that visualizes the unconscious relationship of two people communicating each other with two CG mermaids. I made a model in collaboration with a psychologist to measure and classify the psychological synchrony between two communicating persons. The heartbeats of the two persons are measured by the sensor on their fingers. And interactions occur according to the following model using the heartbeat and the position of each other’s hands. ・If the heartrates are high and their hands are close together, their coordination is high. ・If the heartrates are low and their hands are far apart, they are not interested in each other. ・If the heartrates are high and their hands are far apart, they are ashamed of each other. ・If the heartrates are low and their hands are close together, they are relieved to each other. The behavior of the CG mermaid visualize one of these states in which the two persons’ communication is. Picture 7 shows one scene of the interaction bewteen mermaid and viewers. This work was accepted and was hornorary mensioned at Interactive Art in Ars Electoronica.
