The work Emotional Stimulus invites these six people to participate in an interactive audiovisual experience, in which information from each participant is collected in real time, and returned to the group as graphic and sound responses on the table surface, created based on beats, pulses and emotions from each one of these human circuit members. It invites visitors to connect with themselves and others to reflect on the quality of our connections, exchanges and affections with the people and the cities we live in.

In a time when hate is increasingly normalized, it is necessary to think about love as a social answer.

Emotional Stimulus was designed for the exhibition Between Bits, Atoms and Affects at Sesc Sorocaba.


The installation was created to cause impact on the public about the effects that emotions have on our body and brain, the one and only collective and social being that we are.
