www.marbleart.tv released


This time have we done what we call #marbleart.tv. This is a real-time twitter connected artwork done together with CROWD and sponsored by Skanska. The installation is released as a part of the real-time conference Moving Images in Malmö.




This twitter experiment enabling twitter users real time interaction with a physical art installation. The installation is a pyramid made from 5000 marbles, triggered by 5000 tweets. On it`s way to the pyramid each marble falls into a marble run filled with ramps, tunnels, pinwheels.

Join by tweet #marbleart.tv and view the action at www.marbleart.tv

And that's not all, you can go bananas on it by controlling a lot of other stuff like:
"#marbleart.tv loop" going to the loop side.
"#marbelart.tv right" or left command will control the 2:nd track
"#marbleart.tv disco" turn on disco light

Thoughtmade 1.0 is over.

The candy machine was a huge hit and we are very happy to say that even if we had some downtimes we delivered about 1300 candies to visitors at minc and the thoughtmade event.
The live stream on bambuser was one of the most view that week and even on that month with more than 9000 views :-)

The candy machine was standing at minc the week leading up to thoughtmade and moved to inkonst the final day for the event.

This machine was connected to twitter and triggered in real-time for the tag #thoughtmade.

Here are some of the stuff that have been written about the machine and the event:

You can still "give @sidpiraya candy" see the original site www.giveawaycandy.com.

Are you interested in having one of these machines for your event or other ideas you think we can help you with please contact us.
