'Risk', the final RISK LAB performance by Michelle Browne

Call by RISK LAB to watch a poker game with a difference at our poker table. 

'Risk' by Michelle Browne is a performance that explores how entrepreneurs and economists respond to risk-taking. It considers entrepreneurship and the gamble that is taken to generate business in the economy. In this curated game of Texas Hold ‘Em  the artist competes against high-profile entrepreneurs, including Peter Stewart, and Steven Forsyth.

Quite often poker is about bluffing, sizing up your competition and betraying nothing during the game. During this game, however, the players are monitored with a shimmer device that tracks their stress levels by measuring things like galvanic skin response, which is used in lie detection tests.
