The Mercy of data | installation, 2020
"The Mercy of Data" operates as a living metaphor, embodying current trends from the social media platform Twitter. The installation is a closed system that includes a plant and a maintenance system controlling water, air, and light. By using the Twitter API, hashtags are employed to regulate these three elements and thus determine the plant's destiny. Each element corresponds to its hashtag counterpart. The appearance of a specific "element" will activate its associated lamp, pump, or fan. | IN COLLABORATION WITH Benjamin Schlemmer.
