How does the human body react to current social issues?

How can data from those reactions and feelings become source material for contemporary artistic production?

We are looking for project partners to join a small scale proposal to implement an interactive music and digital arts project.

This proposal concerns the production of an innovative electronic music & digital arts festival, where artworks presented are created by utilizing data collected from bodily and emotional reactions to social issues.


Transition to 8” is a project that connects contemporary artistic creation, societies and technology through an innovative and multimodal approach, aiming to foreground a community’s collective experience of a specific social issue, through art.

The pilot case of the project is currently being implemented in Eleusis by MENTOR (cultural production and management company), Athena Research Center, and the University of Athens (Department of Psychology), resulting in a methodology that connects pressing social issues with contemporary art, by using biometric data as source materials for artworks.

The project actively engages local communities through participatory activities, during which social issues are studied and discussed, data from bodily and emotional reactions to those issues are collected and constitute a digital ‘moodboard’ which is given to artists to produce artworks.


Employing a methodology designed by sociopsychologists and computer researchers, community members participate in sociodrama sessions, where sensors register bodily and emotional reactions to specific social issues. The collected biometric data comprise a digital “moodboard” that includes text, audiovisual material, data, etc. which, in turn, becomes source material for the creation of artworks. A large-scale festival will give back to the community its (heart)beat expressed through artistic means.


·         Mapping local social issues

·         Community engagement activities

·         Artist mobilities -> art residencies to co-create, exchange good practices (e.g VJs / visual artists with music producers)

·         Capacity building / skills exchange

·         Showcases of produced artworks
