A twenty-minute long video was compiled showing how the software tracked differences in facial expression in participants viewing funny, neutral and sad stimuli.

The Experiment Marathon Reykjavik, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Ólafur Elíasson, is a two-fold project that expands the idea of experimentation and display. It comprises of an exhibition and a public event, which brings together leading international artists, writers and scientists to form a ‘laboratory of experiences’.
