The face of the EU [Processing]

This *digital sculpture* should visualize the conflict of the european identity; the ambiguous relationship of Europe with its residents. To the outside, Europe cares to look united and whole, but inside Europe no-one feels himself to be “european”.
It’s a collection of 27 points that attract and repel each other (red/white connections), with these relationships gradually changing every second. A skin partially covers the internal hussle, representing europe’s facade to the rest of the world. Built in processing.
