Kermotiva: Interactive Public Art Installation Public

Downloadable Content

open in viewer

Kermotiva is the visualization of the emotional state of the community in which it is installed. This was achieved through the use of data analysis on RSS feeds, weather statistics, and financial data, resulting in a base emotion. This is then combined with user data to create the final emotion displayed by the sculpture. The data was visualized by projecting varying colors, displaying words provided by users on LED screens, and playing songs associated with the emotion being displayed. This provides the members of the community interacting with Kermotiva information about how they are behaving and how they are treating one another. By providing the population with this information, increased awareness of the effects of an individual's actions on the community, as a whole, is created. -
