TweetingSeat: The social media park bench

TweetingSeat is an interactive park bench that was designed by Chris McNicholl to explore the environments in which the bench is placed and the people whom it encounters.  Each time someone sits down, TweetingSeat uploads an image from two cameras to the Twitterfeed. One camera is located on the bench looking at the surrounding space, and another is located nearby looking at the people who use it. The hope is that by brining the real and digital worlds together that people and communities will form their own relationship with the object through the way in which they choose to use it. No word yet on where and when the TweetSeat will be installed but you can keep up with the project on their blog.

 #ripbillcunningham If you live in #NYC and love fashion you got dressed everyday hoping to cross paths with Bill Cunningham. I will never forget 3 winters ago on an incredibly cold day I was crossing the street wearing a cowel and my @wildesunglasses and realized Bill was on the other side photographing me. For a kid who grew up a nerd, having that happen was a bucket list moment. We talked for a few minutes when he stopped to get my name and I couldn't help but tell him how much I loved his work. Today the world lost a great talent. #rip #nytimes #photography #billcunningham  Unknown artist in the 13th district of Paris #streetart #streetartist #streetartofficial #paris #mural #streeartparis  I love watching tourists try to figure out what to make of @kaiaspire street art #Paris #streetart #streetartist #streetartofficial #streetartparis #kaiaspire
