#Planet140 is a 20x30 digital installation at the Austin Museum of Art's Jones Center for Contemporary Art during the FEED party at South by Southwest Film, Interactive and Music Conference, 2013. Here's an example of the installation running for just a few minutes during the @NIGHT DJ sets.
#planet140 feeds in live, trending topics and displays the data in a fun and unique digital environment. "Robie" projects top trending photos, the UFO beams up top trending topics and our space rover displays messages from top experts on Twitter.
An estimated 2000 visitors per day to the exhibit during the conference's 5 day run can play with the installation by tweeting messages to the stars and tweeting to launch the rocket!
