D-tower, Doetinchem

D-tower is a 12 m tall tower designed by artist Q.S. Serafijn and architect Lars Spuybroek / NOX, and is located in the city of Doetinchem, Netherlands, mapping the emotions of the inhabitants. By combining network relationships with a performative sculpture, the project locates itself as both a prefabricated epoxy sculpture in the city and a performative entity affected by the inhabitants.


How it performs:
The tower changes the lights according to emotions reflected from the D-tower website, (www.d-toren.nl). On the website there is a questionnaire, where the inhabitants can respond to respectively love, hate, happiness and fear, determining the intensities of their feelings. Each evening the tower transmits the colours as “the State of the Town” assuming the most intensely emotions as a large interactive system of relationships.

Personal messages can be placed in a capsule underneath the tower as well as the tower will present a prize to the address in the city that scores the highest level of emotions.
