TGIC by Romain Tardy

Into The Great Wide Open Festival, The Netherlands 2018, 30 August - 2 September

The Great Indecision Council(TGIC) is a large scale audiovisual installation that proposes to the audience an introspection to human intimacy. What are our interests? What are our REAL interests? We often secretly search on google things we are interested in or we would like to know. The installation combines data visualization of real-time Google searches with visual content and animataions designed by Tardy.

I was in charge of collecting data from what people was searching on google in real-time. By using Google Trends API, web scraping and Google Cloud Text-to-Speech API we could reproduce with voice the real-time searches.
