Trending Topics Live!
The cultural heritage can be presented to a broad audience in novel ways. The installation responds to digital information that generates from current events in the region and social media message from people that visit the Dutch Technology Week and the citizens of Eindhoven. Local news and social media conversations are analyzed, to list the ‘trending topics’ that apply to its environment. These topics are then visualized by linking them to audiovisual archive content (in total 25,000 digital objects are available) that are then shown on the screen. This connects the ‘trending topics’ with our shared history.
