During the Dutch Design Week 2017, the next step in measuring emotions is demonstrated through the audiovisual masterpiece AURA, developed by Eaglescience, Studio Nick Verstand, VPRO Medialab, TNO, Salvador Breed, Naivi and the Effenaar.

AURA

The AURA installation exhibits emotions in a perceivable form. The emotional experiences of voluntary participants create organic, pulsating, three-dimensional light compositions that vary from colour, intensity and form. A sound composition affects the participants to show the distinctions between the individual experiences.

Measuring emotions

Project Brainwave was the first step in measuring emotions within laboratory conditions. Last year, during the Amsterdam Dance Event and the Frankfurther Buchmesse, the technology was transferred to a less controlled environment. During the Dutch Design Week, the field experiment AURA transfers this technology to consumer electronics and wearables, making the experience more comfortable.

Dutch Design Week

AURA is the first of four applications within a new project of measuring emotions that Eaglescience, TNO and the Effenaar are currently developing. During the Dutch Design Week, VPRO Medialab explores in ” We know how you feel” the applications of wearable technology and emotion-data. AURA is the heart of this exposition.
