Synth Eastwood – Homemade – Generative real-time video installation

Generative real-time video installation projected in Filmbase for Syntheastwood’s group show (2009).

Using the processing programming environment I generated a real-time analysis of Twitter to produce an animation of all references to the keyword “Homemade” – the theme of this Syntheastwood group show. This piece allows users to interact by tagging their tweets with the keyword “homemade” and also allows a visual insight into anyone discussing the show in real-time.
