Looking at this video and then back to The Best Connected Artwork at the Walters”, I can’t but think that if you can do this in real time, on the giant video floor with data streaming from Facebook, you can certainly come up with an engrossing visualization of all the interesting connections within a collection. Or better yet, a real time visualization of people using (searching, viewing online, linking) and interacting with (tweeting, blogging, pushing buttons) the collection. Something like IMA’s dashboard, but sexier and more focused
This was something I really found lacking in Talk to me. It would be interesting for that exhibition to do more talking back.
I want to see this done with art, as art.
