The project myPosition! is a collaboration between the interaction designer Nina Valkanova (BG/ES), the Mobile & Physical Interaction Team of T-Labs/TU Berlin and the Institute for Internet and Society at the Humboldt University. It is an interactive urban facade, which represents a collective visualization of citizen opinions. myPosition! will be integrated in the architectural and social fabrics of several local communities in Berlin and aims to enable them to easily participate, come into dialogue and reason on local civic issues and challenges.
Based on an intuitive and funny-to-use body-interface, the reactive visual facade attracts passers-by, who can approach and express their own civic position on a given topic by positioning themselves along the facade. At the same time, the facade displays a playfully visualized collection of opinion shades of "other citizen" and thus represents a collective urban communication platform, which can serve as a feedback tool between local communities, the media, and the city, and beyond.
