Thanks to biosensors connected to a light system, artist Nick Verstand created Aura – an audio-visual and interactive installation transforming emotions into light. The light varies in intensity, form and colour in order to represent emotions more precisely. The artist’s goal is to render feeling palpable, and to break the boundaries between two opposite worlds: the first one is metaphysical (internal) and the other one is physical (external).
