Data is all around you. From your smartphone, to your car, to that laptop on your desk—data is pervasive and plentiful. Streamr is creating an open source blockchain based marketplace for the free and fair exchange of the world’s realtime data.
We worked closely with Streamr to develop a pavilion for a global tour of this innovative new platform. We started at Consensus, the annual blockchain technology summit, with the aim of introducing the crypto community to the concept of monetising data and launch the Streamr marketplace.
We developed a series of live data installations to provoke dialogue and build awareness around the future data economy. We partnered with a team of robotic engineers to generate a comparative data visualisation using Uarm Swift robots. Utilised augmented reality experience to reveal the data your car collects every day and how it is of value. Measured the pollution across New York using data from remote sensors we placed around Manhattan and displayed the results via a real-time 3D light projection. Finally, we used a snoopy device to capture data from attendees devices, visualising their digital footprint as they entered the space.
These activations helped to communicate a complex offer in a way that could be explored and understood by all attendees.
