OTA: Fargo 2014

We collaborated with students across several disciplines to create a series of interactive pieces for 2014 OTA: Fargo, an event to connect and celebrate creatives in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota.

The live infographic for the event involved collaborating with students in Architecture, Women's Studies, and Communication. The idea behind the interactive chart was to showcase whether or not the region has provided them with career pathways.

Constructing the prototype

Additionally, we created an interactive drum kit implementing HTML5/CSS3 and Javascript to build a musical display triggered by human touch using a makeymakey by Sparkfun.

A "Tweet Wall" was created, based on Twitter's Streaming API, to show realtime tweets. This allowed people in attendance to see what others were posting and sharing about the event.
