2013 Sport X Art

Special Web Page

TRIART in 2013, which is the second year’s project, also explores integration between art and triathlon.

The TRIART in this year provides a perspective to express “now” of all athletes for visitors.
TRIART LIVE will show real-time status of all 500 participants such as preparation, start, swim, bike, run, goal and relax, in the visualization. The visualization gives us the dynamic flow of the time in the game of triathlon.

Plus, we will show TRIART LOG also this year. After the game, all athletes can receive a picture roll based log that is visualizing individual events happened around the participant during the game. For example, the log contains automatic tweets generated through the system instead of the athlete, cheers from friends and family, weather info and news info. And the athletes can take it home with one as memory.

The time stamp of all athletes, with information tag, are recorded automatically at each gate in the game. By using this data, the TRIART LIVE provides a real-time collective story to see all status of participants, and the TRIART LOG shows individual stories while they are.
