  • For Sony Ericsson’s Hopper Invasion campaign a grid of inflatable ‘hoppers’ were constructed that were each connected to air pump devices. Fans of the event were encouraged to use the hashtag #prompt while tweeting what creative things they would like to do if they had hundreds of hoppers; these tweets triggered the inflation of the hopper grid, resulting in a real-space visualization of online activity associated with the event.
