How are you today? (KSD ?4.0)“ Is the final extension of work “How are you today?”.
This work consists from canvases, automated hardware system and “How are you today?” software. Every 20 minutes, software driven hardware system is connecting to internet and collects and analyse data. After the data is being processed it is sent to automatic robot system in form of percentage of good and bad news, and regarding to amount of percentage, robot is painting a line onto canvas (e.g. for 30% of positive news, hardware is painting a line 30 cm long.)
After the canvas is being fully covered with painted lines it is replaced with new canvas.
This work is created with Processing software and Arduino Pro Board.
On exhibition in Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb, software “How are you today?” was purposely slow down from every 20 minutes of reaction to every 60 minutes because of the length of the exhibition (photo on left ).
