Pervasive Eyes


Pervasive Eyes engages the inhabitants of Central Asturias in a self-centred exploration of their collective identity through social media analysis and interviews. Exploring positive emotional connections to places through the residents’ own eyes, the project exhibits a situated archive that maps the diverse nature of the region’s polycentric cultural landscape. The results inform an immersive installation, constructed as an informational space, which reveals to the audience the layered narratives uncovering thematic correlations across the metropolitan area and how similar cross-scale and cross-boundary experiences might occur pervasively. Working as an adaptive infrastructure that draws on the audience’s emotive feedback (Galvanic Skin Response), the piece allows for the real-time reorganisation of three-dimensional information exploring the performative interplay of human and synthetic agencies for knowledge aggregation and collective spatial learning.

This work was realised within the framework of the European Media Art Platforms (EMAP) programme at LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial (ES) with support of the Creative Europe Culture Programme of the European Union.
