PICKET! remote protest system
completed at Domus Academy
in Milano, Italy.
PICKET! is a platform that allows online activists to realize a more
significant role in protests. Physical protests are mirrored live within
a virtual space. Through local installations in conjunction with the
Twitter infrastructure, dialogue in the form of text, images and video
is facilitated. Information captured at the physical protest can be
reflected online and become the basis for more dialogue. People online
can communicate individual messages or group activities and feelings at
an aggregated level at the physical event through a variety of
interactive tools and sculptures. The physical protest is
correspondingly enriched by both the dialogue and the visualization of
meaningful online support.
