Hello everyone. Below you will find links to some of the sketches we started working on during the workshop. You can edit them, change the hashtags they follow, change values for latitude and longitude, switch from a query based on geolocation to a query based on topic and words, and alter any other parameter you can find…
The First Idea
We started with The Informer project, thinking of an application in the daily life.
The Informer would be sort of a statute (or something similar) placed in a bulding (or small sector) that will substitute the neighbors message board, and will play de annoucements each neighbor tweets with a hashtag created by them.
The objective is to build community within the habitants not only annoucing things such as “I’ve lost my cat” but also having sounds as codes to comunicate something: whenever there is danger, someone could tweet the word and trigger an alarm sound, or if someone wants to be joined for dinner can tweet dinner and trigger another sound.
What we did instad: What does Design Decode sounds like?
Because our first idea might nor reflect the way we wanted to in realtime for the “visualization” of the project, we decided to change it and use tweets that are already there.
Since we are sonifing things, we thought it would be nice to hear what Design Decode sounds like: by taking all geolocated tweets with the #DesignDecode hashtag we will give a tone and frequency to tweets from the conferences, the workshops, the parties and the exhibitions.
This is something that could be done every year the festival takes place, as part of the exhibition activites or the things that happen during the festival, imagine that instead of having whatever random music playing in the garden we can have a sound/melody donde by the tweets.
It’s an interactive project within a small area that intends to create a story told by the audience itself. The StoryBot collects all the tweets with the hashtag #StoryTime from within the area, and retells the collective text, always finishing with the question “What happens next?
The story begins with the StoryBot saying, “Once upon a time,” and will end once any audience member tweets “Finally.” This will end the story (StoryBot says, “The End.”) and the story telling process will begin a new.
in a public space you see a question of general culture whit a hast tag
you answer in twitter
if the question has to answer, yes or no type
if you answer is correct applauses and cheers sound really loud
if you answer wrong you get a sound of people saying buuuu
if the question has to answer of a number
if you answer below the correct answer you get a “higher”
if you answer is higher than the answer you get a “lower”
if you answer is clouse you get a “warm!”
if you answer is far you get a “cool”
