Crossed Eyed Mutant Riot & Emotional jukebox

by Keyvane Alinaghi

These are two interactive plays which distort facial tracking and recognition of emotions technologies.

Crossed eyes mutant riot is a game in which the user can destroy a city with his eyes. Emotional Jukebox is the ultimate dream of streaming music platforms: an algorithm that produces a playlist based on the emotions of the auditor. Our face will soon become an essential tool for communicating with these new technologies, at the risk of forgetting its essential functions in our relationships.
