pplkpr is an app that tracks, analyzes, and auto-manages your relationships. Using a smartwatch, pplkpr monitors your physical and emotional response to the people around you, and optimizes your social life accordingly.
pplkpr uses GPS and a heart rate wristband to keep track of when you're coming and going, and when you're feeling emotional. pplkpr implements a complex metric called "heart rate variability" that uses subtle changes in heart rhythm to determine your emotional state. This data is correlated with the people you interact with to determine who should be auto-scheduled into your life and who should be removed.

This installation coincides with Gimme More: Is Augmented Reality the Next Medium?
From February 19 to March 2, Eyebeam alumnus Benton-C will make painterly video portraiture of incoming Eyebeam Bookstore visitors using old-school video gear. Sitters will be altered using hacked wedding video mixers and TiVos that have been wired together, lit by video projection. Past results of Benton-C's project have been compared to the Andy Warhol film portraits in Chelsea Girls. The analog portraits are recorded straight to VHS T-5 tapes. As each T-5 is filled, it's added to a stack of tapes that anyone can pop into a VCR to play for the duration of the exhibition.
