The Classroom

The Classroom re-presents a monitoring system that surveils everyone within a classroom. It is inspired by an artificial intelligence system, which automatically takes attendance and tracks what students are doing at any moment, while providing real-time data on students' outward expressions to calculate emotions.

The Classroom aims to discuss crisis awareness of how our privacy, human nature, souls are diminished by the technology, and what the role we humans are playing within the system. As technology develops faster than culture, our mind and actions are becoming algorithms - predictable, calculable, and usable, as the tool of the power and system. Within the system of technology, are human moving by a sense of order? Does individuality still exist? Where is technology guiding us towards?
