Users spread hope by tweeting for prizes.
Peoples hopes and dreams are brought to life by the "Island of Hope" at the Venice Biennial AR Intervention 2011.
The island searches for the world's best tweets with the hashtag #hope and transforms them into hoped for objects. These objects erupt from the island volcano and spread out over Venice and the world. The island takes tweets from around the world with the hashtag #hope and evaluates each for signs of perfection. Only the very best tweets from that day are brought into our world. The objects float upward and spread, settling across Venice. If the #hope tweets location is turned on the object will float to the location [that can be where you are!!!].
At 5:00 p.m. each day the most re-tweeted #hope floats up into the sky at the Giardini and San Marco Square with the ringing of the bell. The Island of Hope is viewed on supported smart-phones.
Users may try to participate by adding the hashtag to the word "hope" = #hope in their tweets.
Lucky #hope tweeters may actually have their hopes answered and recive the object of their hope***
Tweeting users should hope for something interesting.
