The media art installation Room of Requirements was an interactive installation in which participants stood in front of large projection screens showing gradual color transformations. The viewer was lulled into a false sense of calm by simply looking at colors. In the background, however, their movements were being tracked and data about the viewer was being collected. An analysis showing the person’s height, gender, age and weight was shown on a security monitor, as well as personal preferences and a personality analysis based on where their gaze had been.
