As part of the Transform Today campaign by Absolut Vodka, Yours was invited to create a piece of public art that behaves like the city of today; dynamic, progressive and digital. We responded with an interactive installation that combines traditional art with digital innovation: a robotic sculpture made from bronze and controlled by social media.
The sculpture reacts and expresses thoughts and feelings posted on Twitter by the people of Stockholm. It picks up the stream of posts and voices these through a build-in text to speech module, creating public poetry. People were able to follow and take part in the creative process through one of Swedens most prominent lifestyle magazines. The final sculpture was unveiled at a premiere party at the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm.
