Behavioral Installation
Tech allows artwork to better tap into viewers' emotional responsiveness
Trend – The adoption of emotion-responsive technology in exhibitions is prompting audiences to contribute to the art pieces. Whether incorporating facial-recognition technology or movement and behavioral responsiveness, these installations curate a personalized gallery experience where the artwork mirrors the viewer's state of mind.

Insight – The incorporation of behavior-responsive technology into art installations comes as institutions and artists within this space seek out ways to appeal to Millennial and Gen Z consumers. Since consumers within these demographics respond better to immersive and experiential purchase journeys, responsive art is able to facilitate more intimate interactions and relationships with those who observe it.
Workshop Question — What is a behavior-based activity or installation that could benefit your business?
