This demo showcases a real-time visualisation displaying the level of engagement of a group of people attending a Jazz concert. Based on wearable sensor technology and machine learning principles, we present how this visualisation for enhancing events was developed following a user-centric approach. We describe the process of running an experiment using our custom physiological sensor platform, gathering requirements for the visualisation and finally implementing said visualisation. The end result being a collaborative artwork to enhance people's immersion into cultural events.
