Recyclism aka Benjamin Gaulon - The 2.4Ghz project uses a wireless video receiver to hack into wireless surveillance cameras in the city. One part of the project is to place the devices on street level to reveal the presence of the cameras back to the public and to make obvious the fact that anyone can receive those signals.
Hundreds of six-foot-in-diameter balloons, equipped with high-powered LEDs driven by radio devices, illuminate Britain’s greatest Roman monument: the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site.
A Tardigotchi owner tends to a real and a virtual creature simultaneously. By pushing a button, the virtual pet is fed, which in turn will feed the tardigrade. Tardigotchi has a social web presence: sending an email to the virtual character triggers a heating lamp, relaying a momentary signal of warmth to the tardigrade, while prompting the pixelated tardigrade to recline and soak up animated sun rays.
Commissioned by the Northamptonshire-based Global Footprint Project to create some custom shoes to highlight the regions rich history of shoemaking Dominic ended up taking an idea inspired by The Wizard Oz's ruby red slippers worn by Dorothy to prototype a pair of shoes that literally lead you on the right path home via GPS, some custom software and a few LEDs.
A Ship Adrift takes the data from that weather station and applies it to an imaginary airship piloted by a lost, mad AI autopilot. The ship is drifting because the pilot is mad or the pilot is mad because the ship is drifting; it doesn’t really matter.
If the wind whips eastwards across the roof of the Southbank centre at 5mph, then the Ship Adrift floats five miles to the East.
Web Lab is made of up 5 Chrome Experiment installations that bring the extraordinary workings of the internet to life and aims to inspire the world about the possibilities of the web.
Emerging as a sculptural form defined by a thin wire mesh, 8 individual servos controlled via Arduino. The project’s ambitions are two-fold - first and foremost it seeks to meditate on the transmutation of digital data back into analog movement. In the current prototype, the speed, smoothness, and direction of rotation are modulated to interpret a live feed of weather data. Instead of displaying static values of temperature, humidity, or precipitation, Point Cloud performs the data, shifting between stability and turbulence, expansion and contraction.
This device sends twitter messages based on the activities of a collection of houseflies. The flies live inside an acrylic sphere along with a computer keyboard. As the flies move and interact inside their movements are collected in real-time via video. When a particular key is triggered by the flies, the key’s corresponding character is entered into a twitter text box.
Meet Stanley, a typical player piano with the added twist of being able to take song requests via Twitter. Created by Digital Kitchen and placed on a corner of Pike Street in Seattle for 3 days during the annual Capitol Hill Block Party, users simply tweet a request to @stanleypiano and the system adds them to a list and notifies the user when their request is up next.
Prism presents an alternative view of London, exposing intangible data flows in the capital. It is a lens into a second city, one that is made from infrastructural data feeds and exchanges. Prism draws from a multitude of live data sources, including transport updates, traffic webcams and presents them in real-time as a living patchwork of systems and processes.
Color Forecast is an app and website developed by fashion brand Pimkie that shows you which colors are trending in Europe's fashion capitals in real-time. Video cameras were placed strategically in high fashion/traffic areas in Paris, Milan, and Antwerp and then fed back into a system that created visualizations of the latest trends
On the pier of San Francisco, coin-operated binoculars and telescopes stand waiting for visitors to peer through and “bring distant objects of interest within close range”.

The artwork is a responsive installation with embedded interactive elements. It is responsive to the live environment via sensors and interactive with its embedded CCTV systems. The artwork gathers data from the city (environment) via a custom made wireless sensor network. This is then represented virtually and then this virtual city is represented as this artwork installation.
This project is connecting two Copenhagen neighborhoods using the old maritime technology of signal lamps and Morse code, combined with the modern network layer of twitter messages.
