London Data Streams

Can the data we produce tell us what London is thinking, seeing and feeling? Tekja's London Data Streams visualise and explore the pulse, frequency and richness of London's live data. The piece follows three real-time information streams: Twitter posts, Instagram photos and Transport for London updates. These are presented once as complex raw data, and again as an analysed, in-depth, live data map and a set of interactive explorations. The installation highlights the power of real-time data to reveal rich and intimate narratives about the everyday experiences of Londoners.
