Galvanising Change

Galvanising Change is an experiential audio installation examining climate change, for one audience member at a time. It uses a wearable sensor to measure their galvanic skin responses whilst they are listening to climate justice stories – which are triggered according to the audience’s emotions. For example if the audience is calm then the intense version of the audio story is played, and if they are anxious then the not intense version of the audio story is played, and so on through the narrative.
