Thoughts of Rome is an installation that features 3D graphics generated in real time. The behaviours, lights, colors and sounds are influenced by Twitter events. Certain tweets cause the installation to reply with a haiku and a snapshot of the virtual world.
The walls of the room are covered with 63 large displays, and the reflective floor and ceiling make the immersive effect more impressive. Two computers run the show, one of them with a powerful graphics card connected to a hardware video splitter that sends video over IP to the displays, which can be adjusted one by one to achieve the right crop and color balance.
A web version of the installation, ported to three.js, can be found online (works best on Chrome)
