Tweet emotionally to make this sculpture cry paint

MONOLITT, an interactive installation created by Syver Lauritzen and Eirik Haugen Murvol at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, experiments with a similar idea, as a miniature pedestal takes crowdsourced “sentiment analytics” and turns them into physical paint data visualizations.

In a video detailing the project, above, we see users tweet messages like “Annoyed” or “Feeling good,” which triggers certain paint colors that then dribble out of the top of a white statue to make a “procedurally generated three-dimensional painting.” Though the clip doesn’t explain the technology, we’d guess that MONOLITT is equipped with Raspberry Pi and an API that turns the social media data into physical manifestations.
