Data-Walk

Rahul Sharma

The project explores the potential to perceive the invisible multi-substance of data that permeates our world by collecting data from the Twitter API in real-time and investigating how data from a place can reflect and define its urban narrative, in this case, Berlin.

Data-Walk is an interactive installation where the visitor can move through a representation of a city that is constituted of computer-generated, three-dimensional point data. The user interface allows for interactive control of the travel's direction and speed. The kinesthetic conjunction of the active body in the virtual realm is produced when the physical effort of movement in the real world is gratuitously translated into the virtual environment.
