High Rise Beacon

9th December 2012

A morse signal light was situated near the top of a 27-storey brutalist housing block in Poplar, East London. Real-time “lonely” tweets, twitter expressions of loneliness and isolation, were extracted from twitter and rebroadcast in Morse code from the signal light.
