Join us at the premiere of our new piece i<3 (heart) at this year's ingenuityfest. i<3 is an interactive installation that works on how many twitter hashtags have been published. For this installation it is counting the number of ingenuityfest tweets based on the hashtag #ingenuityfest. 5 hearts symbolically representing the "life" heart's in video games (such as Zelda) illuminate half or fully based on the number of hashtag tweets of #ingenuityfest. The hearts light up reflecting the amount of the current and flow of life on the bridge. Each 1/2 of a heart lights up once a certain number of tweets has been reached. ingenuityfest will start at Friday September 16th at 5pm and continue throughout the weekend. Visit for detailed information. If you cannot make it to the bridge please tweet #ingenuityfest starting Friday 5pm to light up our installation.
