SQUARE SHARE

“SQUARE SHARE” is a concept for creating and viewing personalized newsfeeds. A non-hierarchical pattern is used to determine reading preferences. The personal news items are created by linking different parameters, such as reading time, content source and category. Individual combinations of parameters and links transform the settings into visual “fingerprints”, which can be saved or shared, allowing users to take advantage of the fingerprints of friends, colleagues, and community members.

GUMBALL MACHINE

The purpose of recreating a mechanical object in virtual reality was to link different tasks like 3D-modeling, programming, texturizing and interaction design. By this I was able to learn a lot about every field of work, while getting a deeper understanding of the process as a whole.

BUNDESTUBE (VIDEO NOT YET FINAL)

“BundesTube” is an organization system for the video recordings of the German Parliament’s plenary sessions. By activating a video, users can view highlights of parliamentary sessions and navigate directly between different politicians, parties or topics. The elements attached to the timeline show additional information for specific parts of the video (for example: blue circles = media response; large grey rectangles = politicians, parties; small grey rectangles = topics; decisions). While reading the additional information, all associated items in the video appear, thus arising from the timeline.

INTERAKTIVE KLEIDUNG

“INTERACTIVE CLOTHING” is a concept about communication through people´s apparel. Clothing could show who is interacting with whom and how they feel. Furthermore, it is possible to show life-saving emergency information directly on the person wearing the cloths.

In addition to the conceptual work, the project dealt a lot with experimenting on different approaches of visualization, like 3D scanning and projection mapping.

“CO-RELATE” is a conceptual operating system build up with modular functions.

All data is structured by these functions in relation to other data. This concept aims at finding a way of structuring data without desktop metaphors and fixed location.
