Help

help-scrrenshot-1

Help is an installation visualizing, in real time, help requests and offers mediated by Tweets. A software application selects, through Twitter’s Streaming APIs, all messages containing the word help and visualizes them on the screen. At the same time, the relevant words are extracted from the texts and represented in a graphic form highlighting their recurrence and persistence in time—and their possible reciprocal relations.

Help is a project of Unità di Crisi in collaboration with Marco Quaggiotto, presented at the Independents 2 Pavilion during the 2011 edition of ArtVerona fair.
