September 6th, 2010 - DM001 – GSR Conversation

GSR Conversation opens a new line of communication between two bodies and asks them to find ways to process incoming signals directly with the flesh. Using this device you can have a Galvanic Skin Response Conversation with someone else.

DM001 measures the galvanic skin response (GSR) and sends it to the listener. The GSR is a quantification of the physiological change of the conductivity of the skin and it is assumed to expose other unmeasurable flows of energy or processes of the human body. It has been widely used in scientific research, e.g. the polygraph (lie detector), and esoteric practices, e.g. to capture the human aura. The continuous flow of GSR data arriving at the receiver is actuated into a subtle signal that can be perceived via the skin. While the activity is perceivable immediately the project aims to research the potential of a long term exposure to the continuous exchange of information.
