The Film that watches you back using AI & facial detection technologies. Experienced in the palm of your hand through your smartphone. Set in a near-future world of biased AI and smart surveillance cities. Through this interactive experience, the participant will discover if they are compliant or dissident.
Consensus Gentium is a powerful exploration into the implications of today’s AI technology. Which transports audiences on a unique quest to discover what could come about if we succumb to unchecked surveillance.
An interactive film that simulates the experience of being on a smart phone. Participants are transported into the middle of a narrative set within the smart phone in the centre of their hands.
They are tasked to obtain increased mobility to visit their sick Nana through a government surveillance Global Citizen App.
Using various tests their dissidence or compliance is calculated, by monitoring data for their conscious and subconscious eye gaze interactions, by the devices’ front-facing camera. While various characters reflect the consequences of their decisions.
If everyone believes it, then it must be true!
