This 20' projected digital installation features the City of Austin immersed deep in the subaqueous bustle of SXSW 2012. The deafening roar of 500,000 people transforms into a tranquil Neptunian environment where glowing, deep sea fishes are generated by real-time feeds of Twitter data. Instantly see what topics are trending, who's Tweets travel farthest, and #FEEDthefish!
Beak takes on privacy in this series of interviews with SXSW attendees and explores issues affecting all of us, augmenting them with Mozilla's Popcorn.js.
Popcorn makes video work like the web. It's a set of tools and programs from Mozilla that help web developers and authors create interactive pages that supplement video and audio with rich web content, allowing your creations to live and grow online.

“Sea of Me” uses new augmented reality technology to explore the relationship between data, memory and aesthetics. The intention behind the installation was to craft an artistic experience that required dynamic interaction between creator and participant. We used Microsoft Tags, a type of 2D barcode, as an entry point into interactivity. Tags are traditionally boxed into frames, however for this project we broke that convention and removed the confines of the box in an effort to create greater meaning with the contents.
