Tagny Duff and Smart Bodies.
EBA is a remote body existing in a room for 24 hours. EBA needs to be embodied, watched and directed by on-line computer surveillors in order to survive and perform basic physical functions like eating, sleeping, reading and going to the bathroom. A table in the physical location holds the objects used in conjunction with action commands listed in the drop boxes located on the chat room interface. Each action and object command sent by on-line participants prompts EBA to verbalize spontaneous emotions such as loneliness, joy, hunger, pain and frustration from a singular subjective point of view.
