Based on daily reviews of Twitter posts over an investigation period
of 4 months (01.03.–30.06.2011), this project illustrates the functionality of social media apart from mainstream media in a changing Arabic
World. Tweets from different Arabic countries (Kuwait, Tunisia, Oman, V.A.E., Libya, Qatar, etc.) are
visualized as text and – in specifically arranging recordings of the texts read in different languages – translated into a sound-space-installation. To promote exchange and
connect people interested in the topic, the installation is supported by a variety of presentations and talks informing about the situation and role of social media in Arabic
In cooperation with Lea Bäumler & students from the Institute of Orientalism at the University of Vienna.
