Google DevArt Project

02/16/14

Google DevArt Project - Jon Montenegro

One of our team members has created an interactive social media art piece created with Google DART for the Google DevArt. Art made with code. Project.
The piece uses social media information from twitter to create art. The art piece is dynamically created from positive/happy feelings that have been tweeted from people between specific times. The piece explores social media as a medium, user interactivity, collaboration and displaying mood based information as an art form.

People and their emotional content become the medium for the art.

The result of the art piece is ever changing and may be a change in attitude on the part of the audience that results from the medium of social media itself.
