[Jun 2-4] Claudia Robles’ SKIN – Installation with bio-data

Claudia Robles’ SKIN is an installation, in which visitors have the opportunity to use a GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) interface, which measures their skin’s moisture. The variations of these values are an indication of psychological arousal, such as for example appearance of stress or relaxation. The values received from the GSR are further transmitted to a computer in order to transform the sound and the images of the interactive space. Visitors are therefore invited to participate in order to make an impact on the audiovisual environment through their own emotions.

robles1SKIN is an interactive installation, in which visitors have the opportunity to use a GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) interface, which measures their skin’s moisture. The variations of these values are an indication of psychological or physiological arousal, such as for example appearance of stress or relaxation. The values received from the GSR are further transmitted to a computer in order to transform the sound and the images of the interactive space. Visitors are therefore invited to participate in order to make an impact on the audiovisual environment through their own emotions and physiological reactions.

The installation presented at Harvestworks is an extended (octophonic) version of the original, which was conceived and developed during an artist in residence invitation by the 2580 Association in Romania (Cluj-Naopca) during the “Liquid spaces – dynamic models of space in art and technology”event in October 2012.

Claudia Robles

Claudia Robles Angel is an audiovisual artist born in Bogotá-Colombia, currently living in Cologne-Germany and active worldwide. Her work and research cover different aspects of visual and sonic art, which extend from audiovisual fixed-media compositions to performances interacting with bio-data via the usage of interfaces such as, for example, the EMG (muscles tension), the GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) and the EEG (electroencephalogram, measuring brain waves activity).

She was artist-in-residence in Germany at the ZKM Centre (Karlsruhe,2004-7) and at the KHM (Cologne, 2008). Her work has been presented in festivals and in group and solo exhibitions around the globe, for example, the ZKM Center in Karlsruhe; the International Computer Music Conferences ICMC in Copenhagen and Montréal (2007/2009); the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival NYCEMF (2010/2013); the SIGGRAPH Asia in Yokohama (2009); the Re-New Festival in Copenhagen (2011); the NIME Conference in Oslo (2011); more recently at the ‘Salon Suisse’, an official collateral event of the 55th Venice Biennale (2013).
