The Project

A live feed of projections from social media—the “social media trinity” of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram—will be the basis for this human-sized kaleidoscope. Originally presented at the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art, this installation will produce social media content at the same time that is being produced by social media content.
