Crowd Sourced Condo juxtaposes real space and information space through the creation of an interactive media sculpture shaped by the remotely collected narratives of callers from New Delhi, India. The sculpture's main interface is generated in real-time by 6 simultaneous video feeds from New Delhi (India) to Ithaca, NY (US).

The audio, spatial and personal data associated with participants in Ithaca is shared with participants in Delhi who in turn share their own data. The media shared by Delhi/Ithaca participants is aggregated into a single 3D visualization that results in a collaborative 'space' or generative virtual architecture formed by the discreet drawings contributed by each participant.
