Each work focuses on a different sort of emotion; what people feel, or think, or believe, and so on. Every few seconds, the display changes and another feeling, shared by another person at that very moment, takes the stage. Behind the screen, off-the-shelf electronics and standard code connect to a Wifi network and record every feeling displayed on screen. Read less
