British Library – Chorus

Chorus is a data-driven art installation that translates Twitter reactions to current affairs into evocative typographic choreographies.

Commissioned by the British Library for its major exhibition Propaganda: Power and Persuasion, the artwork examines how ideas and opinions spread via social networks, and their potential to influence public opinion.
