If you could see the social media streams that are generated in urban spaces, how would it change your experience of the city? Would global metropolises look the same, or would their distinct identities emerge? Marc Lee’s augmented reality app creates virtual building blocks out of Tweets posted from various cities. This version of the app shows posts from the area around the exhibition on topics related to technology, crisis, climate and the environment. Try it on your phone — destroy the towers with your touch and watch the animals come to life.
