Take part in an experiment

I'm posting an email message here from a colleague looking for help from any of University of Sunderland readers:


For PhD research in media arts using affective computing, we need participants who can give 20 minutes of their time.

You will be asked to listen to the Sentic Cycles by Manfred Clynes. In short, this is a 15 minutes sound sequence where the participant is asked to feel various emotions.

During this cycle, we will capture your heart rate and GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) in a non-invasive way and use this data to train a classifier which will be used in an artwork.

  • Wed the 1st of April 2009 between 2-4 pm, or
  • Thursday the 2nd of April between 6-8 pm, or
  • Friday the 3rd of April between 10 and 12 am.
University of Sunderland, St Peters Campus, The Media Centre, room 139, studio 4

If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact Adinda van ‘t Klooster on

More information on previous works by the artist can be found on:
