in/visible cities 2015: Prototyping lab
In case you were wondering what I was doing in Berlin 2 weeks ago here is a video that proves that I was working.
During the ‘In/Visible Cities: Prototyping Lab’ creative developers, IT experts, urban planners and future visionaries used sensor measurement technologies to create DIY and crowdsourcing strategies dealing with the visualization of invisible technologies and data collection in cities. The three topics Safety (Digital Citizens), Climate Change and Energy (Hybrid City) and Translocality served as starting point for creating creative use of these data. The three best ideas were selected by a Jury Board of media technology experts, and will be developed and presented as light installations in Dortmund and Jena.
I had the pleasure to team up with Melanie Nobis and Achim Friedland to create a light installation that makes people aware of how much water, energy and waste they use.
After 2 intensive days of brainstorm we came up the the concept of the 'save-o-meter" that actually happened to be selected. YEAH!!!!
