Piece at eBay headquarters using eBay purchase and sale data

Jer Thorpe and Mark Hansen created a piece that pulls random words from text of classic novels and visualizes how eBay users interact with that word.

The piece was housed in the eBay headquarters lobby and automatically refreshed after a given time.
