Quantified Self
Hardware provider: BioAssist

Based on the Quantified Self movement this category wishes to explore the possibilities of bio-monitoring equipment in the arts.

Artists are invited to submit proposals to create an interactive installation which utilizes at least one of the following equipments:

- Oximeter

- Blood pressure monitor

- Activity Tracker/Smartwatch

- Scales

Feel free to integrate external data resources (e.g., social media or Open Data) in your project.

The following is an example of a basic setup that could be easily achieved using the AGILE gateway. Here information from the different sensors is collected by the gateway which processes the data and generates content that is then sent to a projector.

As a reference and in order to kindle the imagination, the following is an example of the use of bio-monitoring equipment in art. Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is a Mexican-Canadian artist working closely with cutting edge technology, his piece pulse room uses hearbeat monitors to create an interactive art installation.
