About

Harmonic Dissonance is a playful art-science installation. Groups of visitors are invited to explore human connectedness as it is mediated by their bodies, brains, and artificial algorithms.
In interaction with the audience Harmonic Dissonance investigates the friction between our experience of connectedness and the algorithmic data systems that describe us and our relationships to others.
Harmonic Dissonance is currently under development and is expected to go live in the spring of 2019. Photo and video footage on this site was collected during a series of test setups in 2018.
