Abstract - Wei-Yi Lin

To show a great extent that arts and sciences are inter-related, my proposed mechanism “Chamber of Fear: tragic catharsis” is pledged to purge the emotions of the experimental subjects through an artificially designed algorithm and a controlled facility. A series of personalized, short, and tragic videoclip would be programmed spontaneously during the three-staged experiment so to inflict pain upon subject’s deepest and traumatized memory. Purgation of subject’s emotion and his unknown sub-consciousness is a way to release mental stress. The process involves stimulating physical senses especially the sense of smell with the use of genetically modified scent. Experiment would show that expressions and minds of persons can be made and cured.
