Share the Love is a Twitter visualization commissioned by The City of Mississauga for the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto. It was displayed in Mississauga's Celebration Square for the duration of the games.

Share the Love takes tracks all of the Tweets originating in Mississauga and looks for certain keywords. Over the course of the installation, the frequency of each word is tracked per-ward, and visualized as a set of floating islands, based on Mississauga's real geography.

Share the Love is an interactive art project built in collaboration between the Culture Division, City of Mississauga and the citizens of the city. Share the Love is a city-wide project that will show us how the citizens are feeling in real time. It will also provide opportunities for the citizens to encourage and spread love to other communities through the simple action of tweeting.
