joy | sadness - A Flickr Social Media Art Piece using JQuery

Live from Flickr

joy | sadness

joy | sadness is a folksonomy interactive art piece created to explore social media
information from flickr as a medium to create art.

The interactive piece explores folksonomy and how we define emotions and how we associate them with imagery. The art piece dyanmically retrieves the latest images from Flickr associated with joy and sadness and creates a subtle collage. The collage is ever changing, always displaying latest imagery from Flickr. My hope is to explore and inspire a unique perspective on what data is and how it may be translated into art.

The medium is jQuery and Flickr data. jQuery was used to constantly retrieve the images related to joy and sadness from Flickr. The composition and interactive animation was also created using jQuery.
