Derrick de Kerckhove talked to me about this work.
It's fabulous !
A way to share emotions, sensibility, and in a way our nervous system.
On a global dimension.
Do you have began to developp a sort theoretical approach that could mix science and art or aesthetic on this project ? It would be interesting.
We will have in the symposium the french artist Olivier Auber who will present the global Poietic generator : http://poietic-generator.net/
He makes an application that question globality and point of view. so he has a reflexion about a new kind perspective, that would be a digital perspective, different from the classical perspective.
There is a presentation of the artistic project and there are many texts about it on his website.
