CONVERSATION is an interactive media arts representation of democracy unfolding in realtime just inside the doors of Palo Alto City Hall. It depends on public participation. Without that, it doesn’t exist.

CONVERSATION imagines an environment where individual thoughts are given form and the means to respond and evolve within a stream of live content from the internet. Local, National and Global feeds provide the catalyst for an ongoing community discussion. From a touchscreen display within the lobby, one can post comments and upload images while at City Hall. An app for mobile devices allows participation from anywhere.
