"If you have Google Earth you can view each person's emotion map as
well as their annotations and photos. The height of the tracks indicates people's arousal level.
The project involved participatory workshops where people could borrow a Bio Mapping device and go for a walk in the local area. The device measures the wearer's Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), which is an indicator of emotional arousal in conjunction with their geographical location. The resulting maps encourage personal reflection on the complex relationship between us, our environment and our fellow citizens. By sharing this information we can construct maps that visualise where we as a community feel stressed and excited.
As part of Node London, two separate public workshops will take place at Independent Photography so feel free to join us:
