so i was thinking . . .

What if during a show opening at a gallery or a museum everyone who entered the show was given a wireless microphone. All the microphones would be fed into a computer that would recognize the words and then display the words like this or this or some other form of data visualization, on a giant monitor in another room. According to a word's frequency it could grow in size, change hue or rise to the top. Or it could take another form altogether, like a bubble or a 3d object that would be extruded. Or it could grow something like this. A visual verbal petri dish of instant criticism.
