Mood of Barangaroo - Mental Health Month 2023

In celebration of Mental Health Month, turn your feelings into art.

Are you feeling happy, excited, calm, indifferent or discontent?  October is Mental Health Month, and to mark this occasion we have installed a giant mood screen in the Lobbies of Tower 2 and Tower 3 at International Towers. 

Our expansive mood screen adapts its colour scheme and design based on your mood, drawing insights from the responses provided in our tailored questionnaire. Each time someone finishes filling out the iPad form, the screen will undergo a transformation in response to their mood.

Furthermore, every day at 4pm, we will calculate the average mood for the day and present it on the screen, where it will remain visible until 8am the following morning.


Why did Barangaroo install a giant mood screen?
October is Mental Health Month. We understand there is often a lot of stigma around talking
about our feelings - our hope is that this installation encourages our community to open up about their mental health, check in on those we care for and help people find the resources they need. It’s also a chance to promote activities and ideas that can have a fun and positive impact on our daily lives and the lives of others.

Is this a scientifically proven way to determine my mood?
Absolutely not. This is a fun interactive art installation that’s designed to get people to think
about how they’re feeling, but it is not a scientific or medical diagnosis of any kind.

Will Barangaroo or any company in the building be able to use my data without permission?
Absolutely not. These forms are anonymous and the answers will be discarded at the end of the
project. None of this information will be used or shared for anything other than to help enhance the art installation and display.

How exactly does the tech work?
Answers to each question on the questionnaire have a numerical value from 1 to 10. These
numbers are added up to create a total that is between a range of 1-70. The range of numbers are divided into 5 (1-14; 14-28; 28-42; 42-56; 56-70) and each range triggers a different mood and corresponding colour. The resulting data mix triggers the AI algorithm to interpret that mood in its way and the evolving results are displayed on the screen.

Can I answer the questionnaire more than once, and on multiple days?
Absolutely! Feel free to come back any time over the month of October and update or check
your “mood.” This is a fun and interactive art installation, and we encourage everyone to use it as many times as they’d like.

Are there prizes to be won for my participation?
Absolutely! We have a fun Instagram Caption Contest with 4 weekly winners and a grand prize
announced at the end of the month.
