Paintings from emotions

Hello ofx community,
just a quick email to show you what we have been busy with in the last few months. Here’s a 2 min clip on our latest work for Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness where we convert emotions into generative paintings.

We measured the brainwaves of their employees with an EEG reader and extracted basic emotional information from the data - things like anger, joy, disgust etc. That was then fed into our generative swarm algorithm which outputs complex paintings.

The emotional paintings were displayed in an exhibition in the Truman Brewery and each of their employees got their emotional “snapshot” at the back of their business card too. For their website, we used machine learning on Twitter feeds to display in real time paintings representing the emotional state of the world at that moment.
