reactive architecture installation
CN Tower. Toronto, Canada.
for Nuit Blanche 2010
with Patricio Davila

E-TOWER invited participants of Nuit Blanche to increase the “energy” of Toronto’s CN Tower by sending it a text message. Every text added a bit of energy to the Tower’s lights, making them pulse faster and glow brighter.

E-TOWER explored how a programmable LED facade can be used as a tool for cooperative participation and communal reflection and as a means to enable dynamic public data visualizations.
