of positivity 

Bear-Ometer of Positivity 2017, was an artwork for CoLabs, an arts meet science event for Bungarribee Parklands. The sculpture is a 4 metre inflatable rainbow bear that interacts with twitter. When the twitter handle @bearofhappiness or custom hashtag #colabssydney receives a positive tweet, the associated account ( will retweet and send a signal to the fans to inflate the bear. The bear therefore serves as a visual indicator of positive social media activity and collates all the positive messages onto its wall. This project was awarded the Department of Industry Award from the NSW government.
