I Am

"I Am" was a collaboration with Swedish poet Pär Thörn, Scott Meadows, and Baris Serim to make an interactive poem portraying "the voice of the internet." We explored using tweets that started with "I Am," and created three experiences. Mine was an interactive installation that projected these tweets onto people.

Using a Kinect, I wrote a motion tracking system so Tweets would follow people's silhouette. When new people joined the space a new tweet starting with "I Am" got pined to their torso. Using a wall mounted projection screen, people could see themselves and others with "I Am" tweets pinned to their torsos.
