Twitter Tunnel: An LED interaction for #hopesforchange
What do you hope for in the world? Head over to Benevolent Society to share!
According to an article from PSFK –
In conjunction with Benevolent Society, Designworks created an interactive light installation that launched at Vivid Sydney 2013. The unique sensory experience “Hundreds and Thousands” is comprised of thousands of LED lights that can be controlled individually, and that respond when visitors interact with them.
Designed as a tunnel for people to walk through, the LED lights represent the thousands of hopes Australians have.
For the last 200 years, the non-profit Benevolent Society (Australia’s first charity organization) has taken on the ambitious mission of helping people change their lives through support and education.
For “Hundreds and Thousands,” visitors were asked to share — in 140 characters or less, using the #hopesforchange hashtag — what positive change they hoped to see take place in the next 200 years. The greater the number of people sharing their hopes on Twitter or the Benevolent Society website, the more dynamic the lighting effects became.
