Energy of the Nation Lightshow

A daily lightshow at the London Eye during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Developed in partnership with graduates from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the show is driven by conversations about the Games on social media. During the day, tweets are collected and filtered according to whether they are positive or negative, then they are analysed by an algorithm which converts them into colour and motion, distilling 24 hours of action into a 24-minute show. Shows are also streamed live at
