‘Make Our Mark’ is a generative artwork developed together with Cedric Kiefer. It is an abstract representation of Twitter activity visualised as a digital artefact of its effect.
The project was commisioned by Levis as an visualisation of the social media activiy on Twitter. The artwork can be loosely defined as a data visualisation, however it is more of a more abstract representation, where the underlieing information is implicit to the resulting artwork
Who we are – is defined by our actions and responses. Like matter consists of relating atoms, the elementary units of the sculpture are the thoughts, feelings and impressions of individuals. As posts and tweets are converted into building blocks, their content will shape the collective artwork one unit at a time. The sole and personal contributions as small as they seem, are vital to the outcome of the collective structure. Thus a conglomerate of human emotion and reaction is digitally built during the event, giving form to who we are.
