On October 10, 2010, E-TOWER invited participants of Nuit Blanche to increase the “energy” of Toronto’s CN Tower by sending it a text message. Every text added a bit of energy to the Tower’s lights, making them grow faster and glow brighter. 

E-TOWER explored how a programmable LED facade can be used as a tool for cooperative participation and communal reflection, and as a means to enable dynamic public data visualizations.
