Doris LeBot by Brendan Dawes
Commissioned by BRIGHT for Twitter France, Doris Le Bot creates unique digital creatures from real-time tweets, born from various properties of the users' Twitter profile.
During ab event in Paris on the 27th January 2015, people could tweet @dorislebot and watch as their digital creature appeared on screen, swimming with other creatures. The shape of each creature was generated from their unique user ID using a Superformula algorithm. The amount of favourites in their Twitter profile acted like food, governing their size.
Colours were mapped to how many years they had been on Twitter, whilst Power Users were given multiple coloured special stripes. Curious users – those that were following more than they had followers had various size antennae with their eye sizes dictated by this ratio. Users with more than 5000 followers were also given special jagged tails to differentiate themselves amongst the others creatures.
