Twitter Art

Art & Design

Picture 15 Every moment of the day millions of people twitter away, revealing intimate, inane, and occasionally insightful comments about themselves the world around them.  This unrelenting chatter is the raw material out of which artists Karsten Schmidt and Sascha Pohflepp have created, the Social Collider, a work of interactive digital art that tracks a user name or theme over time, revealing the way in which ideas propogate through networks.  Visitors to the project’s web site type in a word and watch the data accumulate on the screen and evolve into beautiful pathways that map information.
