"For creating a certain mood, people often use lighting effects and colorful lights. When used on a large scale like with mood.cloud, lights are somewhat emotionally overwhelming and powerfully expressive. This project visualizes emotional status of people in twenty-four strings of LED lights: the bottom LED string refreshes to the color corresponding to the most recent input and it moves up as more updates occur afterward. Through this representation, one can reflect on the collective emotional status of the people in that space in a timely manner." [Excerpt from Art.CHI 2015]
