In this new science, we (the New Philographers) connect a subject to machine that we call The Philometer.
The Philometer measures biometric data. Our sensors gather brain waves, heart rate, body temperature and galvanic skin response.
To gather data, the “subject” is placed in a chair, connected to our sensors and then questioned (and possibly probed) by a trained professional. You can trust us, we wear lab coats.
The subject is questioned about his or her life, shown photos or exposed to any number of sensory stimuli. As the subject’s body and brain reacts to the stimuli, data from the sensors is collected. The data creates a time-and-place specific artwork generated directly from the physiological experience of the subject.
The output is a unique art generated from the subject’s data gathered during the experience.
