Datafizz

This project focuses on the continuous flow of social data fragments that herald our transitions between online and offline worlds.

Each time a person goes comes online or goes offline, servers all over the world are alerted and these simple messages are transmitted to that person's friends. While most of these transitions are ignored, our project captures this data in order to expand and dwell within the liminal spaces between our real and virtual worlds. This continuous and dynamic data flow inspired us to create an installation where these transitions are metaphorically represented by physical and nonphysical phenomena.
