The computerized art critic. There is now a gadget to judge the quality of ones art. I ask, is this really possible to do? In a world where individual taste is priceless, machines may be replacing our personal buds.

Art-O-Meter

Evaluating Art (So You Don’t Have To)

In collaboration with Steve Helsing

Art-O-Meter is a device that measures the quality of an art piece. It bases its evaluation on the amount of time that people spend in front of an artwork compared to the total time of exhibition. The measurements are graphically represented by comments and a 5-star rating system.

Without the interaction of a viewer, the Art-O-Meter will register time like a regular clock. However, when a user enters the area covered by its motion sensor, a second timer is triggered and it will count time as the viewer observes the artwork.
