Turbulence Spotlight: "Sensitive Rose" by Martha Gabriel
[Needs mobile device with camera and QRcode reader]

"Sensitive Rose" is an interactive, navigable compass formed by mobile tags
(QRcodes). To interact with "Sensitive Rose" one has to access the work via
a mobile device. Once there, the user must choose what he/she wants from
life. On the web "Sensitive Rose" maps the desire next to the tag related to
it, and generates a new QRcode for that user. The desire -- for instance,
"Joe wants Love" ? is added to the compass rose which evolves with each new
contribution. Users can decipher one another?s desires by decoding the
poetry hidden within these tags.

"Sensitive Rose" was commissioned by Nokia Trends São Paulo 2008
