Overview

Execution

We developed a digital art widget called COTO-TAMA upon an old Japanese saying, words have souls.The messages typed through COTO-TAMA were transformed into a code which accumulated online.

This code is 50 syllables with individual souls.

The communication system that allowed you to code and decode messages, and the stylish design which was good for visual appreciation allowed us to jack our target's desktops with COTO-TAMA. We succeeded in creating a new community for digital art lovers. Also, COTO-TAMA acted as a direct marketing tool because organizers were able to send information about the event directly to the target when they liked.

Outcome

COTO-TAMA widget was the no.1 downloaded widget in Adobe Air Gallery in just 20 days. It was featured in many blogs and websites, a success as a viral content.At the festival, we executed an interactive outdoor event using the COTO-TAMA system. Without using any advertising fee, the number of people who went to Digital Art Festival Tokyo 2008 increased by 25% compared to the previous year.
