Sensory Empire was responsible for the digital installation side of the #ModernLove event at the School of Life in Collingwood. This consisted of an automatic photo-booth with match-making capabilities. People would fill out a love related questionnaire,have their score entered into the system, have their photo taken automatically using custom face-detection software and then be projected alongside another person that matched their profile. The installation was developed using openFrameworks.

In addition Sensory Empire developed a projection of a heart-shaped tag cloud listing words describing the “hArtefacts” that had been brought in a catalogued for the event. Developing using Processing, the piece read from a continually updating list of tags, and regenerated the tag cloud in real-time over the course of the evening.
