Egometer (2017)

“Egometer” consists of an antique ammeter that was previously used for teaching physics in schools. We modified this machine by adding sensors that measure the user’s various body data.

On a scale between 0 and 100 an ego level is indicated and in the background a portrait of the artists can be seen. When a user touches the two sensors on the machine, an indicator needle starts to move vigorously.

Additionally a mysterious sound is created during this process. Each user generates a different measurement that translates into how much he or she likes the artists.

Once the measurement is completed, a mechanical counter adds one more number. Every exhibition and interaction adds to the ego increase of the artists.
