Gaze as a Vehicle for Aesthetic Interaction: Affective Visualisation for Immersive User Experience
This paper explores the potential of a novel generative visualisation technology that attempts to respond to affective changes of the user through reading their eye gaze. In this affective visualisation the interaction is based on an aestheticisation of the interplay between technological effect and affective human response; this implies to create a semantic framework of visual elements that exploit the affective capacity of user. In order to introduce this novel application the paper draws on critical investigations of aesthetic experience and studies of eye movement, with the aim of introducing a constructive model of affection in aesthetics. Finally, the paper suggests that such critical reflection is crucial for new modalities of experience in human-computer interaction. This is exemplified within the author’s recent practice, which explores the interconnectivity of visualisations of swarm intelligence and dynamic affective changes of the user’s immersive experience.
