VersuS is a diptych of generative infosculptures in which the threads and emotional states expressed on social networks are crystallized into geo-referenced, three-dimensional solids (generative design). Thanks to location-based technologies, natural language analysis and 3D printing (or fabbing), the intensity, density and difusion of emotions are transformed into the mountains, valleys and plains of a hybrid, neo-real landscape.
In “love VS Turin”, an emotional map is created from expressions of love, captured on Twiter in all their intensity. Love in Turin, as conveyed by its digital citizens.
In “riot VS Rome”, digital threads posted during street unrest on 15th October become a means for reinventing life in the city and the way people express their dissent.
Conceived by Fake Press Publishing, and produced by the Piemonte Share Festival in partnership with Fab Lab Italia (Stazione Futuro, Italia 150).
