Social Media meets Digital Art
The Ecosphere is a real-time infographic of sorts, treating the viewer to a stunning visual representation of the evolving global discussion. A lush 3D environment that allows the viewer to explore, view content up close or zoom out to observe the visualisation as a whole. At the core of the experience is a digital growth algorithm is based on actual organic growth in the plant world.
The Ecosphere constantly listens to the global conversation on Twitter – every new tweet tagged with hashtag #cop17 is brought into the system, scanned for keywords and then grouped with similar contributions, connecting input from around the world – building conversations in a fascinating evolving environment.
The Ecosphere is built using a state-of-the-art system called WebGL. Viewers using older systems or browsers may have difficulty accessing the site and are recommended to update their graphics drivers. For best results access the Ecosphere with the latest versions of Firefox or Google Chrome. Both have built-in WebGL functionality and are available as a free download from the respective developers.
