Online communication is often misinterpreted, especially when the sole means of connecting with another individual is through text. EmotiChat is an installation that aims to discover if text based communication can be manipulated to better convey each participants emotion within a conversation.
EmotiChat uses computer vision, facial recognition and biological data technologies in order to enrich the chat room experience. Emotichat is not a tool, but rather an experiment to provoke thought within the user in the hopes that they reconsider the quality of their ability to communicate in digital environments.
Final installation during thesis exhibition.
