  • Summary

    A future company is showcasing a mind-reading product and you are the visitor. The company lets you try their product, so that you will hear what people think about you and others. How would you feel about the existence of the product?

    Full description of the concept

    I want to create a simulation for the following scenario :

    With the developments of Human-Brain-Interface devices, a future company is showcasing a mind-reading product and you (people at the art gallery) are the visitor. The company lets you try their product, so that you will hear what people around you think about. Selling this device is illegal, but this is a special event, by entering the company's showcase, you acknowledge that your thoughts will be shared (transmitted).

    In this work, I want to bring up following discussions :

    How would one feel first time hearing people's thoughts?
    Would there be a personal conflict about using this product?
    How would the future company advertise/create a campaign for the product to be legal?

    I wanted to create the simulation in the following way :

    I will script and pre-record random thoughts related to the scenario, from multiple voices, and transmit the thoughts from a one-directional speaker (preferably hanged on the ceiling). The area that the speaker outputs will be lit up, so only the people that are standing there will hear the thoughts, as if it's coming from others at the gallery.

    There will be advertising material in the sound and thorough some objects on the ground as well.
