Jan Petýrek and Luli Perez: AROUSAL

Part of the IRRUPTIVE CHORA project developed by Royal College of Art and Chalton Gallery, Czech video artist Jan Petýrek and Luli Perez present AROUSAL - a performative measurement of the collective consciousness of the audience. Utilizing empirical methods in a room with three assistants who will work with the audience – measuring their blood pressure and bodily temperature and asking a few questions, the artists will gather a collection of bodily fluctuations which will later be translated into audio-visual data.

An exercise exploring cognitive processes and creating their material versions in an interplay of sound, image, and performance. We welcome the audience to cross the plane of action and experience kinaesthetically through their own bodies how their entity can be altered with such crossing.  

Jan Petýrek is a Czech video artist and an interaction designer based in London with particular interest in perception of space, spatial narratives and human brain’s ability to relay complex memories. He explores virtual and physical experiences with an aim to create immersive installations and events.
