What does your data say about you? How do you know who to "friend" and who to "ignore"? Is your mate your soul-mate? Created collaboratively by art collective and parody tech start-up Pepys Inc., e-Geaux (beta) is an original piece that mashes up theater, improv, and data visualization into an interactive performance experience that is guaranteed to change the way you use Facebook. Audiences will get the opportunity to opt-in to e-Geaux from their mobile phones and see first-hand how cloud-based social media artificial intelligence will change their life. Pepys Inc.'s crack team of data analysts and performers will live-mix each audience's actual Facebook data to create that show's content. Featured in NPR’s All Things Considered, Washington Post, and DCist, e-Geaux (beta) challenges assumptions about our personal relationships with technology and social media.
