ReConstitution 2008 - Live Presidential Debates Remix by Sosolimited from Sosolimited on Vimeo

Sosolimited, a three man audio-visual ensemble, has written a suite of software that analyzes the spoken words, gesticulations, and cadences of candidates throughout the presidential debates. Statistics on what words candidates use, how positive or negative their speech is, and how often they blink are presented alongside live debate broadcasts. This election season, Sosolimited has presented their real-time data analysis at performances in Boston and NYC. Their final performance is at the Corcoran Art Gallery in Washington, DC.
