EquiDot is an interactive sphere representing collaborative visitor-fed data about social constructs. The data represents the salient social constructs that affects visitors the most. The goal is to create a safe, inclusive space where people with diverse backgrounds can record their response and contribute in making a collaborative art that creates a dialog about the effect of social constructs. Each dot on the sphere represents an individual response and is completely anonymized.
The visitor can use gestural inputs with their hands to interact with the sphere. The goal of this museum exhibit is to bring together both intimate and social aspects of an individual to create a conversation surrounding the development of a more inclusive society.
