#MIMMI

Playful hybridization of digital and physical spaces through large-scale interactive cloud


First-prize winner of an open competition for the City of Minneapolis. MIMMI is a large, suspended, air-pressurized sculpture located at the Minneapolis Convention Center Plaza. Cloud-like in concept, the sculpture hovers 30 feet above the ground, gathering emotive information via twitter from Minneapolis residents and visitors to the plaza. MIMMI analyzes this information in real-time, creating abstracted light displays and triggering misting in response to this input, creating light shows at nighttime and cooling microclimates during the daytime. Whether the city is elated following a Minnesota Twins win or frustrated from the afternoon commute, MIMMI responds, changing behavior throughout the day and night. A mobile application also provides Augmented Reality by integrating the words from the twittersphere into a visual capture of the sculpture - just look up!
