Art-O-Meter: Evaluating Art (So You Don’t Have To)

 

Reblogged from MIT Media Web so all you have to do is think.

Thought for the Day:  What if we graded our websites or videos this way?  How would you do?

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.
