Interactive Mural Utilizing Social Media

by: map_admin

The Candadian Tourism Comission has installed giant touchscreens in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago that diaplay twitter feeds from Canadian tourists. Passers by in the U.S. cities are encouraged to stop and interact in real time with their vacationing neighbors to the north.

While it’s technically a big advertisement and Canadian “tourists” in the feed seem mainly to be locals promoting local shops and events, it still wins an award for being an innovative use of social media in a public space. It’s an idea that the right artist could turn into something very inspiring.
