Digital murals

As an accompanyment to the physical murals being created across the host city of LA, a series of online digital murals gave users not physically at the games a chance to participate. Starting as abstract shapes and colors, the murals were revealed over time by users tweeting the hash tag #ShareTheJourney. The murals were then shared across Twitter and Facebook.
