United Colors of Dissent

United Colors of Dissent (UCoD ­ http://ucod.org) is a data­driven performance designed for live public interaction using mobile phones and public displays. Participants collectively respond to a series of questions in their preferred language using a web­based voting interface running on their mobile phones. At every question, UCoD builds real­time graphics based on the answers and features them both on the phones and the public displays. The performance intends to capture the linguistic and socio­cultural profiles of different communities in urban environments by creating real­time visualizations that can map the prejudices, assumptions, and biases we may have about each other.
