[ISEA2006] Artist Statement: Will Pappenheimer – Public Mood Ring

Artist Statement

Venue: C4F3

Public Mood Ring is a light installation that displays the emotional condition of public news stories as a color hue. The artwork responds to a computational distillation of information from news stories posted online, and recalibrates the color of the light it casts in C4F3 every 15 minutes on that basis.
