Despite the many strong points of living an urban lifestyle there are some notable disadvantages. One example of this is the difficulty that many apartment dwellers experience with owning pets.
Projection Pets seeks to create a temporary digital substitute for our animal friends. The two Projection Pets ‘Kami’ and ‘Lumo’ are digital creatures whose ‘skins’ are made up of a series of projected visualisations based upon text taken from twitter feeds. Some tweets contain words that may cause Kami or Lumo to change their mood. If you are on Twitter send them a tweet @PPKami and @PPLumo, maybe your tweet will form part of the show!
