A continuous, real-time representation of "trending topics" sourced from Twitter and Google.  The relentless conversion of global activity into a scrolling, over-saturated rainbow reflects our abundant data-stream through both literal (text) and abstract (color) means.

There are approximately 30 trends shown and they are updated every few minutes as the piece transitions.  This cycling from quiet color-solid to dense data to solid again composes the stream into visual stanzas reminiscent of orchestration while the colors themselves are derived directly from the tending data.
