Social media is flooded with the mundane - shallow connections, arbitrary statements... hoards of text and filter-heavy images. But what if social media was art? What if connections represented more than a follower count, but a means to meet and interact with the strangers immediately around you?
Connexion Point is a visual and interactive art piece generated by the patrons of 2013's Nuit Blanche event in Toronto. Via a mobile web app and a multi-user, gesture-based, interactive interface, the stories and secrets of those who visit are collected, digitized, and projected into a colourful world of geometric, kinetic elements that evolve into a digital community over the course of the night. As this world populates.
