To feel commonality is to find support and companionship towards an idea, a cause or experience.
Enhance the idea of digital collaboration by creating a visual and physical representation digital companionships as they occur. In this installation participants witness how digital participation creates a piece of art in real time representing togetherness, interconnection and collectivity regardless of geography.
The installation uses Twitter as data source, an Arduino robot as medium, and a large paper surface as canvas. The robot moves drawing lines or circles every time a new person tweets a previously defined hashtag. The final outcome is a large abstract drawing of all these tweets during a set period of time. Participants besides to experience a live creation they can also observe previous art pieces exhibited in place.
