Cybernetics Approach to Virtual Emotional Spaces - An electrodermal activity actuated adaptive space

conference contribution
posted on 2020-09-29, 08:44 authored by Sayyed Amir Hossain Maghool, Mitra Homolja, Marc Aurel Schnabel
In contrast to reductionist investigating of interrelation between emotion and architecture, we have proposed a new concept for creating an adaptive architecture system that employs biosensors and virtual reality (VR). We have generated a dynamic audio-visual Virtual Environment (VE) that has the potential of manipulating the emotional arousal level of the users measured via electrodermal activity (EDA) of skin. Much like the second-order cybernetics system, our simulations have actuators, sensors, and an adaptation mechanism, whereby participant's real-time biofeedback is interpreted and loops back into the simulation to moderate the user experience. The results of our preliminary test show that our system is capable of manipulating the emotional arousal level of the participants by using its dynamic VE.
