Bio-Mapping Workshops, San Francisco

Data Map

London-based artist Christian Nold will be leading three weekly Saturday workshops in April as part of his project Bio-Mapping. Bio-Mapping is a social project exploring an individual’s uninhibited response to place by inviting people to go for a walk or bicycle ride using a “bio-mapping” device. This device measures the participants Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), a simple indicator of emotional arousal, as well as tracks their physical location using a Global Positioning System (GPS).
Workshop participants are invited go for a walk or bicycle ride using Nold’s bio-mapping device and return to Southern Exposure galley to engage in a conversation about their experiences. All data will be collected and published in a printed emotion map of San Francisco by the end of the project. Call 415-863-2141 to sign up.
