Today we live surrounded by data, but how can our individual daily actions affect global information structures? This installation plays with the duality of local and global information we are constantly generating and being exposed to by enabling the visualization of real-time data. The sound captured by a microphone inside the installation works to control and mediate the immediate and temporal changes on a hologram, which in turn constantly fetches and visualizes live open-source data obtained from a Smart Citizen kit. Smart Citizen is a participatory platform where various users all over the world can capture, register, and connect their local environmental data, such as levels of noise, temperature, light, and air contamination, in order to create a collective construction of the city for its own “inhabitants”.
