This project serves as the fourth prototype for an undergraduate architecture thesis titled “Emotive Space: Connecting Biometric Data to Dynamic Spatial Response.” The thesis responds against the tradition of responsive environments that are optimized for environmental efficiency or utilitarian user needs. Instead, Emotive Space positions itself within the counter tradition of installation work that that is focused on human experience. This prototype uses real-time biometric data, in the form of a pulse sensor, to manipulate the animation of three light-reflecting mirrors. When the pulse rate is mapped to manipulate the speed and the rotation distance of each mirror. The purpose of this prototype was to test effectiveness of using biometric feedback to create a dynamic spatial representation of mood. Ultimately, this system is imagined to be built at the architecture scale.
