Out of Touch 

Out of Touch is a generative video and media installation that tracks the viewers emotional state via their facial expression and displays images scraped from flickr with corresponding tags.

The installation comments on the mediation of emotions through remote communication technologies, focusing on the reduction of the complexity and misinterpretation of human emotion through computational processing as well as on the algorithms’ counter-intuitive visual associations with certain emotional states.

When tracking multiple viewers at once, the installation reflects all recorded emotional states in a corresponding collage of images.
