A slot machine connected to a massive computer gear, will be located in the centre of this tower. The intent with this space is purely an interactive one, as audiences will be given instructions to pull down the slot machine arm. Once such arm is pulled down, the gears connected to the machine will start to motion, propelling the screen message in code form : “ Congratulations You have Just Given up Your Privacy”
LIKE & BE WATCHED
A massive humanoid touching the like button in return for money, will be situated overlooking and touching this tower. The intent with this space to show how the more “Likes” one has, the more the money is involved.
