Visualizing our social network

Network pet


Using your social network is a way we keep in touch with our friends and family, by using social networks these relationships grow. What if we would look after our network as a real physical thing? Having it with us, charging it, looking after it like our laptops and phones. Making it a living thing which will follow us and is fed by our use of the network, becoming our pets.

Each creature will respond to a different part of the social network, by moving faster, making noises and growing. By giving the network a physical existence in our home you will have a different relationship with it. You might feel sorry for that one little creature that hasn’t been fed for a while and you will open twitter. You will see a businessman with huge creatures, you come back from vacation and some of them have shrunk.
