Tally 1: Houston TX

This “generative” whiteboard installation invites visitors to evaluate their response to someone who is crying. It initiates a series of tallies to be conducted in different cities and countries, in galleries, public space as well as medical schools, displaying one of the questions that scientists use to measure a person’s empathic capacity. The piece represents a form of arts-based data collection, an uncontrolled visual trial to trace variations in empathy levels in different communities.
