TILO: Arts Digital RnD

Tilo has been developed over the last 12 months as part of the Digital RnD fund in the arts. The collaboration was led by media artists MeYouandUs, with technical and strategic support from digital agency Amaze and digital signage company Pixel Inspiration.

TheCreative Exchange at Lancaster University took a more qualitative arts research perspective on how an arts organisation might take advantage of smart screens in these spaces to explore new marketing, branding, social and curatorial approaches to public engagement. The system is being piloted in FACT Liverpool and Phoenix Leicester.

We use live local weather data from the BBC combined with hardware temperature and humidity sensors on the “internet of things” ninja block platform. This data is then combined with the time, date, sunset and evening to create keywords that are in turn used to query a curated list of flickr groups to bring back contextual images to form a simple animated visualisation. On paper, this all sounded boringly complicated but the end result is a surprisingly mesmerising and during sunsets even a little romantic.
